    Celtic Designs: The Cross

    These beautiful and complex interlacing designs, seen in such manuscripts as the Book of Kells, are remarkably easy to draw if you are armed with a simple and effective technique! You will be amazed what you can achieve and you will take home a Celtic cross that you have made to amaze your friends with!

    This course is open to anyone, but it is assumed that students have no previous experience and we will start from the very basics.

    Students to Bring:

    • Ruler
    • A fine black pen for outlining
    • We have various brushes, felt tips, and coloured pencils but feel free to bring any of your own you may want to use
