The Uncial Hand

This alphabet is steeped in rich Irish history! Used by both Latin and Greek scribes as a major book hand from the 4th to the 8th century, the Uncial alphabet is commonly seen in manuscript work.  It was recently made even more popular by its connection to the heavily illuminated Book of Kells.

 In this class, using a broad-edged dip pen, students will explore the foundation, structure, and distinctive hand of the Uncial (Celtic) alphabet, in a step-by-step, guided instructional.

 Also called "uncial," which is Latin for “inch,” this ancient alphabet is both beautiful and useful. This class can also be used as a refresher.
