Illuminated Manuscripts are basically documents with text and decoration. We'll create contemporary Manuscript book structures with rich, ornate, pattered illustrations, floral and alphabet letter embellishments with detailed borders. Learn construction and techniques on Open spine Coptic stitch bindings, and French Link stitch books. We'll work on 2 projects during this 6-week class, concentrating on concept and technique. Gold leaf application will be introduced for embellishments. Coptic stitch bindings are a beautiful addition to the spine of a handmade book. The French Link stitch book will include mixed media techniques with a touch of whimsy and the unexpected.
