Brussels Renaissance Festival: Workshop writing with a quill

29 June 2021
13:00 - 16:00

This event has passed.

The Brussels Renaissance Festival highlights the role of Brussels in European history. At the end of the Middle Ages, Brussels belonged to the rich and powerful Dukes of Burgundy. Skilled politicians and cultured patrons, they established a stirring treasure, a unique and fascinating collection of manuscripts: the Library of the Dukes of Burgundy. Many of these masterpieces have survived the ravages of time and of history. Today, they can be admired at the KBR museum.

Combine your visit to the KBR museum with a workshop in which you learn to do calligraphy like a medieval scribe. Leave your smartphone behind and become a copyist for a few minutes.

With a quill in your hand, you will (re)discover that writing letters can be quite an art! Limit the thickness of the lines, round off the letters neatly and don’t forget to avoid smudging… You will undoubtedly start to admire the artists who, centuries ago, created the calligraphy in the museum’s impressive manuscripts.
