Create Your Own Book Of Kells


An Introduction To Calligraphy L



Start with the discovery of the Book Of Kells, one of the treasures of Dublin, and then head out to a private venue for a fun-filled calligraphy class and create your own Book Of Kells.



One of the greatest treasures that lies in Dublin is the Book of Kells. And not only will you see the Book of Kells during this activity, but you will also learn some calligraphy techniques to make your own!

Meet your experienced calligraphy teacher at Trinity College, and follow him inside the building where the Book of Kells is exposed. Thanks to his insight and experience, you will understand just how fantastic this old book is. Have fun while searching for specific details and learn a lot through fun-facts and exciting stories. On your way out, you will also go through Trinity College’s famous library where thousands of old books are kept…

After a 10 minute walk, you will arrive in a beautiful, private area where the hands-on part of this activity takes place. This area is somewhat related to Trinity College as it is a beautiful library as well, and a place where great minds gather to discuss certain cultural and historical topics.

After going through a few basic instructions, it will be your turn to start experiencing the art of calligraphy: each member of your family will write his/her name and paint it to make it look like a real medieval masterpiece. And once everyone is finished, these papers will all be assembled to create your own very personal family Book of Kells!

Our Create Your Own Book Of Kells is the greatest way to experience the literary heritage of  Dublin and leave with a beautiful self made calligraphy book!
