Jill Robertson (who is running this workshop) writes that this mug was the inspiration for her idea to reproduce the script that is on it and then work towards making a mug of your own.
Jill bought the mug at the scriptorium in Avranches, in Normandy, where they house the scripts from the nearby Abbey of Mont St Michel. The script is an early 13th century script and is fascinating to copy as it is a mixture of other scripts we often see.
Do come and enjoy studying an old script and then trying to reproduce it yourself. Jill has done a lot of the hard work, analysing the letters to make them easier to copy!
The end result may be that you design your own mug and send the image off to be made into a mug for yourself.
