ABOUT this blog


Welcome to my blog Scribe Scribbling, an attempt by me, Ian the Green, to share my scribal projects and research with the world.  I greatly appreciate the readers of my blog and I very much welcome your comments and questions.  While you’re here please click on the rating you feel each post and page deserve.

I am involved in many activities in the SCA. This blog is dedicated to my scribal arts.  I love exploring the medieval methods, materials, tools and techniques used by scribes to make the the written word come alive on the pages of medieval and renaissance manuscripts.

I am a calligrapher who attempts to recreate medieval and renaissance manuscripts and so  I want to learn about the tools and materials that would have been used in the time period I study.  This way my writing will be more authentic to their writing.

My scribal and scribal related activities include:

~ Calligraphy

~ Illumination (Gilding)

~ Parchment making

~ Ink making

~ Pigment making

~ Quill and reed pen making

~ Research,research, research

I hope that you enjoy my blog and find it useful as well.

I also run the Scribal Resources for Scadians web page take some time to check it out.

In Service,

The Honorable Lord Ian the Green, CE, CSO, APF, CCK, AoA

  1. Hello your honorable sir!! I am in Melbourne Australia. I have just begun teaching a 2 year calligraphy certificate course at RMIT University. This is after a break from teaching of many years. I am a professional calligrapher and have earned living from the art and related services for over 25 years. It is a passion which grows and thankfully people like you are firing that passion and fueling my creative life and now teachings with generously given information through your blogs. I am encouraging my students to research through the web and to connect with the wealth knowledge available. Many thanks and good luck with your big move Cheers Lauchean
