- Visual Art Workshops
Using the same techniques and materials as the scribes that made the Book of Kells, this two-day workshop will involve working on real parchment and mixing traditional pigments to create a work of art inspired by the original insular manuscripts with the help of scribe, illuminator and parchment maker, Thomas Keyes.
Following on from years of research into insular parchment and pigment making techniques and working with leading experts at Trinity college Dublin and the University of Cork this workshop will run in conjunction with Thomas’s Insular Research Residency at Groam House Museum. The residency will involve the creation of a replica 8th Century gospel book and the supporting scribes toolkit that would have been at Rosemarkie in its monastic phase.
This course will involve getting as close to the world of the insular scribe as it’s possible to get and in so doing gain a deeper appreciation of Celtic insular art. It’s suitable for anyone with an interest in Celtic art or broadening their range of creative skills. No experience necessary.
£135 includes delicious, home-made lunch each day at the Old Brewery; tea/coffee provided.
