CELTIC ILLUMINATED LETTERS

Join us as you learn a touch of Celtic knot work as well as patterned ornamentation to add to the age old art of making Illuminated Letters, much as the ancient monks of Ireland and Scotland did, but with a modern twist. While the art of illuminated manuscripts and lettering is much older than the Celts, we'll be applying a bit of this style of knot work and pattern to large letters using pen, ink and paint.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
