Discover Sunday: Brian Whitmore Calligraphy

Following on from his successful art installation in the Walled Garden in Autumn 2023, Brian Whitmore is returning to Norton Priory to run a drop-in workshop as part of the Discover Sunday programme of activities. Themed to reflect the environmental messaging that is accompanying the Gaia installation, this is an opportunity to create sublime and thoughtful artwork to take home.

Attendees of the Calligraphy Workshop, which is inspired by Luke Jerram’s Gaia Installation, will have the opportunity to learn creative mark making and pen control, whilst also dipping into learning and using the Uncial Script. These newfound skills will be then used to create a calligraphic circular globe (with the option to make it into a finger puppet), scribed with a meaningful Earth quotation…

There is no additional charge for this activity, which is included in General Admission prices (and free for members of Norton Priory Museum and Gardens).

Tickets are valid throughout the day and include the opportunity to see Gaia, which is displayed in the atrium of the museum visitor centre. To take part, book General Admission tickets for Sunday 14th January 2024 via the Art Ticket website.
