Illuminated Manuscripts Masterclass

Waddesdon has a superb collection of illuminated manuscripts, mainly Books of Hours which are rarely displayed because of their fragility.

This year, manuscript specialist, Sally Dormer, will focus on the making of a manuscript, materials and techniques in the morning session. The afternoon will be

an opportunity to examine an example from the collection in detail.

Although sessions will be presented as stand-alone activities, participants are recommended to attend both sessions in order to get both a sense of how a manuscript is produced and an in-depth study of a specific book.

Morning session: 10.30am-12.30pm (break for coffee/biscuits at 11.30am)
Afternoon session: 2pm-4pm (break for tea/cake at 3pm)

Adult £40 per session. Booking opens March 2018.

Please note that if you wish to visit the House then you will be required to purchase a ticket.
