The wonder of an ancient art

1 day 4-6 people100 euros per person

Sophie Theodose is an artist specialised in illumination, a medieval technique of painting on parchment with extra fine pigments, gouaches and sometimes gold leaf. During this introductory course, which is designed for beginners, participants will work on small lettering or miniatures on paper or parchment (typically made of goatskin), with the help of the artist. Materials that may be used include ink, gold leaf, gouache (a kind of paint that you mix with water) and pigments. Materials are included in the price.
