Also called the threads of the Virgin, filigrees have been used from the end of the Roman period to the beginning of the Renaissance. These ornaments are based on the stylization of plant shapes. Made with pointed nibs, these patterns are numerous during the Gothic period.

   During this course, we will study a generic type of filigree present throughout Europe in the 14th century and see how to fill large spaces with basic pattern variations, how to adorn initials with borders and how to invade the margins with antennas. The last part of the course will be dedicated to modern variations and layout to build XXIst century initials from these medieval techniques.

 

Class Cost: €50
