Register for this event →

The Walters’ manuscript exhibition From Pen to Press: Experimentation and Innovation in the Age of Print explores the era when books were often composed of both printed text and hand-painted decoration. Some of the most fascinating aspects of these historic manuscripts are the decorations, flourishes, and stylized text that enliven the borders and margins. Join Elissa O’Loughlin, former senior paper conservator at the Walters, as we explore the technique of hand-painting books. Using patterns and styles present in the From Pen to Press exhibition, participants will practice hand-coloring manuscript pages, using both paint and gold leaf.
