A variation of which was used in the famous Book of Kells created in 800AD, Uncial is a majuscule script (written entirely in capital letters). Uncial lettering was commonly used by Latin and Greek scribes from the 4th to the 8th century AD. As we learn the script, students may use it to write their favorite Irish proverb or even a bawdy limerick. During the latter half of the course, students will be introduced to Celtic Knot Design. Constructed using a grid method, ornamental Celtic knot borders and elements are typically complete loops without any beginning or end. Early on, these designs were used mainly for decorative purposes. Over time, people began interpreting them as the crossing of physical and spiritual paths, and as symbols for eternity and the endurance of life, love and faith. We will cover how to construct the basic basket-weave patterns from which students may develop their own individual designs, perhaps as decorative borders around their Uncial calligraphy to create truly unique Celtic works of art.

“Pysanka” - UKRAINIAN EGG DECORATING WORKSHOP
Thursday, March 26 | 6:30-9:30PM
$95. 
A delicate craft thousands of years old, the “pysanka” is a Ukrainian egg decorated with traditional folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word ‘pysanka’ comes from the verb ‘pysaty,’ meaning “to write” because the intricate designs are not painted, but rather written on the egg shell with melted beeswax. Every symbol and color applied has its own specific meaning. It is believed that some pysanky could even protect households by trapping evil spirits deep within spiral motifs. Other geometric designs were stylized representations of wishes: pine needles for eternal youth, the sun for long life, antlered deer for prosperity, poppies for beauty, birds for fertility and wolves’ teeth zig-zags for loyalty and wisdom. Why not try your hand at making a pysanka? Join us at the table and write your own story on your own eggs! Eggs and materials provided.
