Illumination Workshop with Toni Watts

This event has ended

Join us for a day of illumination with one of the few remaining professional illuminators in the UK, Toni Watts. Adults 16+.

During this workshop you will learn to apply gold flat on the page, producing an illuminated letter or simple design.

During the morning you will have the opportunity to practice applying gold leaf flat on the page using a number of traditional and modern ‘glues’. Having honed your skills, during the afternoon you will complete a small medieval manuscript painting in watercolour and gold leaf to take home with you. No design / drawing skills or experience necessary although creativity is welcomed! There will be a choice of medieval designs for you to choose from should you wish to do so and all materials are provided.

Tickets £24.

Session takes place in the Castle’s Activity Zone

Tea and coffee will be provided, but not lunch. At this time we do not know if there will be a cafe open on site, and recommend bringing a packed lunch.
