Calligraphy Workshop – Amergin Solstice Poetry Gathering

Deadline: 21 Jun 2020

This Calligraphy Workshop with Timothy O’Neill as part of Amergin Solstice Poetry Gathering focuses on traditional Irish script.

The workshop will be a practical exploration of Gaelic script, the writing style associated with Irish language texts from the beginning until its official discontinuation in the 1960s. Examples from medieval manuscripts will be used as a guide to developing a script suitable for personal use today, especially for scripting a poem or quotations. Materials will be available but participants are encouraged to bring their own pens, pencils and an A4 or A3 Layout Pad.
