20 January to 26 February 2023 – Inspired by Lindisfarne, Customs House, South Shields
During 2022, Angela Reed of Creative Calligraphy worked with her calligraphy groups to create an exhibition inspired by the return of the Lindisfarne Gospels to north east England during the latter part of 2022. In October 2022, I worked with her groups to teach them the basics of Celtic knotwork drawing. The groups have combined calligraphy and Celtic knotwork to reflect on ‘What do you take as gospel?’.
Three of my Celtic knotwork pieces are also being shown as part of the exhibition.
Find out more on the Creative Calligraphy blog.
