Theme week - 25 - 29 July

Art Week

The Middle Ages are often portrayed as dark and colorless, but if you look at medieval art, you can experience a wealth of colors, figures, and patterns that stand in stark contrast to modern prejudice. The Middle Ages were full of colors and art flourished. Strong colors and even gold were used to bring out the right effects in art.


Not everyone could write in the Middle Ages, and if you wanted to have a document or letter written, you could go to the writer in the city, dictate to him, and thereby have your letter written. During this week, it is possible to try your hand at medieval writing with quill and ink, and try your hand at gothic scripts.


Our volunteer painter’s Guild, Sankt Lukas Gildet, has invited a group of their foreign artist colleagues to come to Sundkøbing and showcase their skills.


The Guild of Saint Lukas specializes in recreating late medieval art, and they possess an incredible knowledge of how medieval artists worked. They can explain and show the entire working process, from the preparation of the raw pigments to the finished painting.


You can hear about pigments, quill pens, ink, painting techniques and get a unique insight into medieval painting when the Medieval Center and the Guild of St. Lukas invite you for an entire week of beautiful medieval art.
