Free Calligraphy Workshops for Children

BOTH WORKSHOPS ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED.

Carlow County Museum presents two unique calligraphy art workshops with Tim O’Neill, one of Ireland’s finest calligraphers.

During the workshops, Tim will reveal the secrets of our medieval Celtic designs and students will learn that it’s ‘knot’ difficult to draw these impressive world-famous designs when you know how!

In the 7th and 8th centuries, monasteries in County Carlow were producing fabulous books made of vellum. A number of these books survive to this day, including the Book of Mulling from Saint Mullins and the Calendar of Willibrord from Rath Melsigi, Milford.
