An initial is a decorative initial letter of chapters or sections in a handwritten text. For centuries, illuminated letters in gold and bright colors helped brighten the effect of the word in the truest sense. In the workshop, materials will be presented and a jewelry initial on parchment with watercolor and gold leaf executed step by step.
