About

St Albans Cathedral’s Art & Craft activity – Illuminated Lettering for your students.

In Medieval times, many illuminated manuscripts were produced in St Albans Monastery. In this workshop, students learn about the skills, techniques and materials used to make these, before creating an illuminated letter of their own.

At the end of each workshop, all students will have produced a piece of art to take back to school with them.

Most schools combine two activities, usually a trail and a workshop, to make a whole day of their visit. Trails include drama and artefacts to help students develop their learning, whilst workshops allow them to create a piece of artwork to take home at the end of the visit.
