Discovering Celtic Patterns

This workshop is a lively look at Celt­ic designs, which flourished in Ireland, Scotland and Wales during 300-800 CE. What influenced these designs, and who were the people that created them? We look at insular designs reaching back to the Iron Age, influenced by Greek and Etruscan designs, which are still influenc­ing art today. We discuss the life of the scribe and look at the intricate designs found in illuminated manuscripts, includ­ing the Celtic knot. We will explore tradi­tional step, key and spiral patterns while adapting them into repeating abstract designs for a small book cover. The design can be bound into an eight-page, 3.5 x 4” book.

Supplies: colored card stock PA44, bond or writing paper PA43, pencil S142, eraser E13, ruler S271, micron 05 felt tip pen M17, colored pencils PL05, S471, water­colors S808, gold gouache SG870, HG644 or acrylic, binding thread S825, tracing P43 and grid paper P21, P22.

P21. JNB Graph Pad 11x17, 50 Sheets
JNB Graph Pad
Light blue grid (8 squares/inch). 24 lb bond. 11"x17". Approx. 50 sheets.

A non-bleeding paper that is great for calligraphy. (We use the same paper in our JNB Practice Pads.) Many instructors have their students use this pad in their classes.

(For graph with slant lines P01.)

Please choose color: Light or Dark.

Light: This grid does not show on many copiers, shows faintly on others, and usually disappears when you adjust the exposure one setting lighter. If you use a copier to produce your finished art for reproduction, this is the pad for you. This pad is good for jobs done at quick printers.

Dark: For classes, some students may appreciate a slightly darker grid. This is particularly true for adult classes. This is still a light blue grid. Some teachers have commented that their students found the original pad's grid was too light.
