Initial illumination workshops

Illuminated Initial Workshops
 
What is it about?
The illuminated initial means a higly decorative letter as well as a gilded letter that appears as the first for example in the text. Metaphorically, the illuminated initial means clarifying, throwing light on, explaining, from a technical point of view, it means using gold and other precious metal in order to enrich and to make more beautiful the letter, and it is strongly connected with brigtness and glittering.
