The art of writing — illuminated manuscripts

Note: this is not a HWR official event. We just think it would be interesting to our audience!

Writing isn't only about getting thoughts down on paper. It can be legitimate art.

An illuminated manuscript is a text decorated with initials, borders, and other illustrations. The artistry can be absolutely breath-taking.

Join Australian artist Tania Crossingham as she takes you on a fascinating journey into the world of illuminated manuscripts. Learn about these amazing books that defined the medieval era and are now one of the greatest treasures of western civilisation. Tania will also introduce you to her own illuminated artwork where she has evolved the artform into contemporary spirituality.
