Work of Students of the Thomas More College’s Guild of St Luke
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.
