The Ancient Art of Calligraphy

The Ancient Art of Calligraphy

Hosted workshops in Kildare Cathedral

Josephine Hardiman and Anne O Reilly (calligraphers) demonstrated the ancient art of calligraphy and hosted workshops in the hallowed setting of the cathedral, Kildare Town, on Sunday 12 August for Heritage week.

The students ranged in age from 7 to 70, experimented with quill pens and inks as used by the scribes long ago when they compiled their illuminated manuscripts.

With unbridled enthusiasm the young and old scribes showed great concentration and artistic flair, while beautiful music from a lone harpist played in the background.
