For more than twenty five years Chicago Celtic artist Michael Carroll has created brand new illuminated pages in the style of the Book of Kells. Seeking to pass on the long-lost secrets of the monks, Carroll will teach a Celtic art class, "Knotwork By Hand and Eye" this spring at the IAHC.
"Knotwork By Hand and Eye" is open to beginners and continuing students; no prerequisites or art experience is necessary. Students will study the easy grid method of Celtic knots and patterns, creating borders and freehand knotwork.
The class is April 21 through June 2 on Saturdays from Noon to 3pm. Tuition is $130 for IAHC members and $150 for non- members. Visit www.irish-american.org to register or call 773-282-7035, ext. 10.
