Make Night: Manuscript Illumination

The Walters' Make Nights are back in 2015! Make Night is a unique, dynamic museum program blending good wine and craft beer, great company, and fantastic art-making experiences led by local creative minds. Pre-registration required. Each Make Night includes one drink ticket.

Inspired by the manuscript exhibition From Pen to Press: Experimentation and Innovation in the Age of Print, participants will practice hand-coloring their own book pages with decorations, flourishes, and stylized text, using both paint and gold leaf. Elissa O’Loughlin, former senior paper conservator at the Walters, leads this evening’s workshop.
