Service Description

Margins: a new series focusing on the margins of a manuscript page. These are as important as the main image.

All part of the deep dive into the book arts. To cover all artists and/or ‘doodles’ for comprehensiveness this class takes place over 6 weeks. You will need teastained and prepared paper ready for class unless otherwise indicated. This is so that gold (if done in class - not all classes require gold) shows up more beautifully. Instructions for this. can be found on the Forum: (search for Paper Prep). We give as much importance, love and attention to details to the margins as to the main image. Upcoming are fantastic beasts and creatures including the dragon and simurgh, lots of gold, sessions on colourful margins that are more interesting than their main image, possibly even some gold sprinkling. Also to think about are different paper types; dyed margins; blues, pinks and turquoises. Perhaps the stories in the margins tell us more…
