This is one of the Illuminated letters that will be used in my class in Melbourne.
Students will be given a detailed illustration, but it can be added to or simplified at any stage.
An illumination is an EMBELLISHMENT, or additional decoration that enhances the pages of a written, or manuscript page. The term, Illumination comes from the term Illuminate, or to fill with light. This effect is achieved with the application of gold leaf to the letters and images, which reflect light and appear to glow.
However, we will do it with fabric. In this class, the more exotic the fabric, the better the result.
There will be Drapplique and machine appliqué with this beautiful gold thread.
