New sessions start after Easter:
Monday 10-12 at Sunderland Museum (starting 9 May) and Thursday 10-12 at St Bede's, South Shields (starting 5 May).
Scribes will be looking at alphabet designs and creating their own original alphabets and using them to make a design rather than write a text. Written, drawn, painted or printed - the choice is yours. The cost is £40 for ten classes.

This session will focus on illuminated letters, while still doing some calligraphy, and there will be a visit to the library at Durham Cathedral to look at some originals. Cost is £35 for ten sessions, please contact Age UK on 0191 514 1131 to enrol.
