Education pack for Haddington History Society
I was asked to provide images of a variety of medieval activities by the Haddington History Society. These would be part of an education pack for local schools about life in a medieval monastery, available for download now.
It was stipulated that the images should be in black and white, so as to avoid expensive colour printing and photo-copying.
I opted for a black and white ‘wood-cut’ style that would reflect the era under discussion. I assembled these images in Adobe Illustrator, developing two brushes specifically for the task, which would emulate the physical tools used to create such images.
- Caring for the sick.
- Bee keeping.
- Alms to the poor.
- Copying books.
- Reading aloud.
