In this colloquium there will be four workshops led by masters of arts and crafts connected to the Scriptorium Collective: a calligrapher, a letter carver in stone, an illuminator and a book restoration expert. These artisans will provide an introduction to materials, techniques, production processes, design and function of the documents.
|Date||19 December 2019|
|Time||17:00 - 19:00|
The Scriptorium Collective is an independent consortium of researchers, craftsmen and curators of university libraries concerned with the production, usage and research of religious books in the wider context of book cultures. The primary aim of the Scriptorium Collective is to bring together science and practical experience concerning the production, usage and study of these documents as found today.
