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:
~ 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.
