Celtic knotwork, the ultimate tutorial

Celtic knotwork, the ultimate tutorial

Celtic knot Stone Celtic crosses, such as this, are a major source of our knowledge of Celtic knot design. Carpet page from Lindisfarne Gospels, showing knotwork detail. Almost all of the folios of the Book of Kells contain small illuminations like this decorated initial. History[edit] Examples of plait work (a woven, unbroken cord design) predate knotwork designs in several cultures around the world,[2] but the broken and reconnected plait work that is characteristic of true knotwork began in northern Italy and southern Gaul and spread to Ireland by the 7th century.[3] The style is most commonly associated with the Celtic lands, but it was also practiced extensively in England and was exported to Europe by Irish and Northumbrian monastic activities on the continent.

Reed's Celtic Computer "Art" Site I'm Reed Mihaloew (known in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) as Rolin Thurmundsson, and available through e-mail at "[last name] [at] mitre [dot] org"). I've been interested in Celtic-style art since the late 70's, having been introduced to it through the SCA. My original work was all done by hand, but I started to experiment with computer drawn work in the early 80's; originally on a Mac. My original aim was to generate Celtic page templates that I could trace with a light table and fill in by hand using manual calligraphic and painting techniques. Despite the name of this page, I make no claims to "artistry" in these works--just that I like them. All the images on these pages were generated using Paint Shop Pro (versions 3 through 8 -- see for information). My current Dell laptop PC uses a 2.2GHz P4 processor, 512MB RAM, and a NEC 19" LCD monitor used in tandem with the laptop display... I consider myself heavily indebted to a number of talented people.

There I encountered a confederation of NGO’s working closely with local tribes to create a sustainable way of life based on principles of environmental stewardship, wildlife conservation, and peace. Despite enormous adversity that includes poverty, drought, and wildlife poaching, and some dubious intrusions of outside religious, commercial, and educational culture, this quiet mini-revolution, led by a council of tribal elders, is bringing peace and stability to a huge area of Kenya. Our twelve-day exploration traversed a wild, dry-baked landscape of red soils, thorny bushes, lions, hyenas, and isolated tribal villages with no paved roads or electricity for several thousand square miles. ~cj, August, 2011

The name "Book of Kells" is derived from the Abbey of Kells in Kells, County Meath in Ireland, where it was kept for much of the medieval period. The manuscript was never finished. The Book of Kells contains the four gospels of the Christian scriptures written in black, red, purple, and yellow ink in an insular majuscule script, preceded by prefaces, summaries, and concordances of gospel passages. It is believed that some 30 folios have been lost. The book, as it exists now, contains preliminary matter, the complete text of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, and the Gospel of John through John 17:13.
