Medieval Manuscripts & Capital Letters with Risa Gettler

April 25, 11:30 am - 3:30 pm


workshop with Risa Gettler

Medieval manuscripts bedazzle the eye with pages filled with stunning capital letters painted with glittering gold, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and other powdered precious stones. Working with gouache colors that duplicate precious gems you will learn the ancient production steps used to create decorative capitals. Use them in your work and individually as unique and personal gifts.

  • Step by step instruction
  • Personal attention for every student: no previous experience required.

All materials included

CD/Dropbox of my personal collection of decorative capital letters
