Gothic illumination in the style of the School of St Albans.
This past week the Guild of St Luke offered an four-day intensive class in gothic illumination. Learning the 13th century style of the English ‘School of St Albans’, students had a choice of four images from the Westminster Psalter. Mr David Clayton, Thomas More College’s Artist-in-Residence guided in drawing the image and then coloring using the traditional technique of egg tempera. The class consisted of both undergraduates from the college – who sacrificed their spring break to attend the class and were allowed to attend for no tuition fee – and a number of people from outside the college.
