Angular Build-up Letter & Intertwined Build-up Letters

There are many built-up letters in Celtic manuscripts such as The Book of Kells and The Gospel of Lindesfern. Among them, the initials, which have a unique design and image unique to Celtic, and have a strong presence, become a single work with only those letters.

At this class, you can learn how to write angular letters, how to combine them, how to draw beautiful straight lines, and how to draw the colors and dots between letters. In addition, Let's learn how to write curvy and rounded letters, how to entangle beautifully, and how to draw patterns and colors to put between letters.

Celtic Pattern

Many of the Celtic manuscripts such as "The Book of Darrow", "The Book of Kells", and "The Gospel of Lindesfern" contain many stunningly beautiful and fascinating patterns. A typical Celtic knot is a complicated braid pattern that means "knot", but let's learn this braid pattern like a puzzle.

The spiral pattern that you see a lot in Celtic manuscripts is called a spiral. It is one of the symbol signs that have been engraved on megaliths and tombstones for thousands of years, and has been involved in the spirit of humankind since ancient times. It is used as a sign that hints at revival or reconstruction.

In addition to Celtic knots and spirals, animals, birds, and people appearing intertwiningly are drawn vividly in Celtic decorative manuscripts such as "Lindeth Fern Gospel" and "Kells's Book". The limbs and beaks of these characters are stretched out strangely and are strangely entwined, and the strange world that exceeds the imagination is one of the attractions of the Celtic pattern. Learn celtic patterns by combining geometric patterns that fill carpet pages and borders.
