Illuminated Manuscripts Masterclass

Adult £40 Normal grounds admission applies
Meet in the Manor Restaurant

Waddesdon’s twenty-six illuminated manuscripts are written on parchment and decorated and illustrated by hand.

This day, comprising morning and afternoon sessions, will focus on four, French Books of Hours produced in the 15th and 16th centuries, which have not featured in previous manuscript study days. Close observation of materials, techniques, and the relationship between texts and illustrations will reveal fascinating evidence of 15th-16th century devotional practices and aesthetic taste.

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, £70 all day.

Meet at the Manor Restaurant.
