U3A Workshops 2017

RIN has entered an exciting new partnership with House of Illustration to host a series of three workshops for members of the University of the Third Age (U3A). Each workshop includes a seminar by a current RIN member on some aspect of the history of illustration, a special gallery tour and a practical session in which a professional illustrator will lead all of us as we create art of our own. No prior knowledge or artistic training is expected – the goal of each event is learning for the pleasure of learning. All events are open U3A members and their friends.

Check back regularly for full details of the workshops, which will be posted here.


Making Medieval: Illustrating the Middle Ages from Chaucer to Morris

Thank you to everyone who joined Dustin Frazier Wood and Merlin Strangeway at House of Illustration for ‘Making Medieval’. We were delighted to see so many people engage so enthusiastically with medieval manuscripts, book illustrations and ornamental lettering – as always, we all learned a tremendous amount and had a delightful time doing it. An outline of the seminar with suggestions for further reading is available for download here.
