11 June – Portway School Workshop 5 – The Alphabet Rules

Workshop 5 was at Portway School.  It was a beautifully sunny day so we worked in the garden.  Most of the letters in the alphabet have been designed but they aren’t finished yet.  The illuminators continue to work on their letters according to Medieval Alphabet Rules:

  • Stretched letter forms
  • Gold leaf around the letter
  • Decoration on the outside with foliage and mythical beasts
  • Decoration on the inside with abstract pattern

The Alphabet is starting to look really exciting.
