Scriptorium – Basic Manuscript Flora

Scriptorium-banner

Wed, Sep 21, 2016: Scriptorium, Basic Manuscript Flora

Scriptorium is the monthly gathering of calligraphers, illuminators, wordsmiths, and anyone interested in taking up and learning more about these creative arts. We welcome all skill levels, from the most accomplished Laurels to those that have never picked up a pen or a brush. Become part of creating the atmosphere and visual splendor of the SCA!

This month, join us on Wednesday, September 21st, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at Kameshima and Isabel’s house in the North Hills. (Our address is listed in the Dark Pages, or you can contact us at scriptorium at debatablelands dot org for more information.) Our topic for September will be “Basic Manuscript Flora” taught by THL Isabel Fleuretan.

This is an overview and “step-by-step” class on drawing a selection of basic flora found in period manuscripts throughout the middle ages. Not only can this class help you learn how to draw basic flora, it can also help you start to break down the different elements of a piece to make more complex illumination more approachable. This class is aimed at beginning scribes or those that would like help improving their flora skills, and is taught with the permission of Baroness Ekaterina Volkova, originator of the material.

Please be aware, our house contains a cat, a dog, and an infant: medicate or otherwise prepare yourself as necessary.

Scribal Workshop, July 10th

The Scribes’ Guild announces:

SAVE the date!

There will be a workshop offered at CMU in the Debatable Lands on Sunday, July 10th from 10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. This workshop will focus on the techniques used in The Book of Hours of Louis of Orleans or what I refer to as the “French Quilt” style- bands in the marginalia filled with acanthus and flowers. Have you wanted to learn how to flat gild, master acanthus and the French flowers and strawberries? This workshop is for you!

I assume everyone’s summer is as busy as mine so I am posting a tidbit so that you may save the date should you wish to participate in this workshop.

For more information email me at MistressAntoinettedelaCroixAT gmail.com (please replace the word AT with @ and leave no blank spaces.

PS: Gladzor Book of Hours is coming your way at Pennsic!

June Scriptorium: Project Night / Small Group Workshops

Scriptorium is the monthly gathering of calligraphers, illuminators, wordsmiths, and anyone interested in taking up and learning more about these creative arts. We welcome all skill levels, from the most accomplished Laurels to those that have never picked up a pen or a brush. Become part of creating the atmosphere and visual splendor of the SCA!

This month, join us on Wednesday, June 15th, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at Kameshima and Isabel’s house in the North Hills. (Our address is listed in the Dark Pages, or you can contact us at scriptorium at debatablelands dot org for more information.) Our topic for June will be Open Project and Small Group Workshop Night.

Bring your current assignment, or something that you’re currently learning, practicing or tinkering with. Lots of table space will be made available. Be careful if the recipient is a local scribe, though; we love looking over each other’s shoulders, and we wouldn’t want the surprise to be ruined! 🙂

Alternately, do you have something you’ve been curious about trying? Chances are someone in the local scribal community has already tried it! Send your requests to Kameshima at scriptorium at debatablelands dot org and we will do our best to try to arrange someone to work with you in a small-group scenario for some or all of the evening. Or if you don’t want to plan that far ahead, just show up and ask! We are a friendly bunch that love to share our knowledge and experience.
