For more than twenty-five years, artist Michael Carroll has been creating new works in the style of the 8th Century Irish monks. His intricate illuminated manuscripts have been likened to “lost pages from the Book of Kells.” Seeking to pass on the tradition, he offers two Celtic art courses at the Center this winter.

This class is an introduction to Celtic Art: calligraphy, knotwork, spirals, key patterns and more. Learn how to create your own borders with beautiful Celtic decoration for illuminated poems, greeting cards, arts and crafts projects.
