Written and filmed, singlehandedly, during a hot Friday afternoon while awaiting new members at the Luton Irish Forum Calligraphy Group. Quite a meditative exercise. Concentrating wholly on each stroke as it was made, but having to keep everything within the scope of the camera. There were difficulties with video angle and there are a few mistakes that I am sure the more experienced scribe will shudder to see, but all in all I was quite pleased with my afternoon’s work.
Only a few edits of the worst bits so the viewer has a good idea of the timescale, speed of writing etc.
I am wondering, as you probably will as you watch, especially if you have the sound turned up, who is walking purposefully up and down the room. I am used to hearing footsteps from the upper floor but watching this, I am sure there was someone in the room who, perhaps, didn’t wish to disturb me. If so, I must apologise if I seemed to be ignoring you. Come and tap me on the shoulder next time.
If you would like to join us, we meet on Tuesday evenings from 7.00-9.00 and Friday afternoons from 2.30-4.30.
We are a nice friendly bunch of scribes of mixed ability all learning from one-another. Whether you are an absolute beginner, or a scribe of long standing, please do pop in and have a look at what we are doing.
At the time of writing this, Gill and I, with the help of the Humanitas Shop In Hitchin are now running fortnightly Monday, morning / evening sessions. Please speak to Donna re availability.
There will be more on Blackletter in due course.
Keep watching this space.
