Before we embarked on this Jill demonstrated how to create a feather paintbrush with a very fine tip, which would be capable of producing extremely fine details such as those seen in medieval manuscripts. This was the very Australian version made with Cockatoo feathers.
We then commenced our main project for the afternoon, the goal of which was to produce a set of bookmarks featuring a decorative panel in medieval style and some writing in Gothic script.
This was an interesting and most enjoyable workshop.
