Beginners Workshop – Uncials with Andrew Cowley

This workshop has been rescheduled to start in February 2022 and is unable to be booked at the moment. Please contact us if you would like to recieve booking details nearer the time.

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those wanting to brush up on the script and is taught by Andrew Cowley, an experienced adult education tutor. The cost for three sessions is £50.

Uncials have been around for centuries and our modern versions are based on an 8th Century manuscript. These beautiful letters are made easier to learn as there is no upper and lower case, so are suitable for complete beginners as well as those with a little experience. We’ll look at the history of the script and then move on to forming the letters of the alphabet and writing words and sentences. There will be tutor demonstrations and feedback during the session.
