NEXT WORKSHOP
27TH NOVEMBER 2021
UNCIALS
WITH
JOSIE BROWN

This workshop will cover a lot of ground – exploring where Uncials originated from, the various different historical versions and what they developed into afterwards.  We will clearly understand the differences between Uncials and Half Uncials and examine the latter’s precedents too.  If there’s time we will also make some unlikely connections between Celtic display capitals (the angulars) and Art nouveau caps.  Individuals may take up whichever form of Uncials they prefer - to practice, refine and modify as they wish – and we’ll put the lettering onto a nifty little flexible foldy thing.
