Lindisfarne Gospels Inspired Calligraphy (FULL)

August 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


This event is part of the Gateshead ALive summer programme, celebrating The Great Exhibition of the North.

Taking inspiration from The Lindisfarne Gospels and other beautiful medieval manuscripts created in the North East, join Angela Reed from Creative Calligraphy at The Angel View Inn in Low Eighton, Gateshead, and create your own piece of illuminated lettering. 

Angela will guide you to form an uncial alphabet using a dip pen and ink to write a quote. The second part of this masterclass will involve ‘illuminating’ your piece with decorated letter and border. 

All materials will be provided.

You are welcome to bring your own lunch but The Angel View Inn has a fantastic restaurant serving lunch too which we recommend highly!
