Through illustrated lectures, participants will examine the story of colour in medieval times.

Using original recipes, participants will make and paint out the colours. No previous experience is necessary. Tutor: Cheryl Porter.

Montefiascone is a small medieval walled city about 100 k (80 miles) north of Rome, on Lake Bolsena. Since 1988 conservators and others interested in books and their history have come together to work, to learn and to enjoy this special place.
