Celtic knots are stylized, two-dimensional drawings of interlaced knot work. Found in the stunning seventh and eighth century monastic manuscripts of the British Isles, Celtic knots are among the most well-known graphic designs dating back to antiquity. In addition to some of the earliest known books—Durrow, Kells and Lindesfarne Gospels—these knots appear in architecture, metalwork and jewelry. The art of Celtic knots provides a creative connection to a rich and beautiful culture as well as a lively way to adorn modern-day greeting cards, book marks and other surfaces.
Lettering Artist Debra Dick will be teaching an easy, step-by-step process for drawing and coloring beautiful Celtic knots. You’ll also have an opportunity to view copies of manuscript art from the period. You don’t have to be an artist—or Irish—to learn this decorative art.
Note: Previous experience is not necessary! This course is for beginning students and anyone with art or calligraphic experience who wants to learn something new and exciting.
