Golden Romanesque Versals

With Benoit Furet

Starting Date : 04 Mar 2023

Fees : HK$ 740 or US$ 95

Workshop Description

The decoration patterns were numerous during the Romanesque period. In this course, we will look at versals from a 12th century manuscript, drawn with interlaced stems ending with vegetal shapes. Originally, these initials were painted in gold and outlined in red. We will study the set of patterns and construction methods first. Then, in a second step, we will see how to create our own shapes and versals by mixing existing elements and changing the color set.

Lesson 1 : Drawing ornaments elements and versals structure

Lesson 2 : Creating our own versals from the set of historical patterns and adding new ones.
