This practical workshop will be run by the chairman of the Shropshire Scribes, Peter Furniss. He has been a calligrapher for many years and has also made detailed studies of the script and techniques used in the Cathedral’s late 8th century Hereford Gospels. The day is suitable for all levels of experience and will include an introduction to calligraphic techniques and to the unique script of the Hereford Gospels.  

If you don’t have any calligraphy materials of your own there will be kits with everything that you need for the day available to buy on the door. Just let us know at the time of booking. 

Cost: £10 plus optional £10 calligraphy kit (Payment in cash and cheque only on arrival)
