Lindisfarne Scriptorium - Treasures for the Journey
Customer Type: Retail







We are Lindisfarne Scriptorium, a small business based on a small Island off the coast of Northumbria roughly half-way between Newcastle and Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne was key to the Christian faith being spread throughout the North of England in the 7th century A.D. and was the location of a Celtic and then later Benedictine monastic community.

Taking spiritual and visual inspiration from the work of the monks who created wonderful books like the Lindisfarne Gospels and the Book of Kells, the calligraphy, illumination and illustration we offer you is a merging of old skills with new materials and new techniques inspired by ancient sacred works.

We aim to offer an artform which draws the viewer into an experience of prayer, meditation and blessing. Our inspiration is also drawn from the rich Celtic spirituality of Northumbria; our Christian faith and the beautiful environment of Holy Island. We aim to follow the great Monastic Scriptorium tradition of producing pieces of artwork that give glory to God and help His people to worship.

Our shop on Holy Island is open mainly during the season (Easter to end of October, Monday to Saturday, tides and staff availability permitting), however out of season and at other times we are usually able to open by appointment so please ring or email or just knock the door, we will be glad to see you! (although if it's before 10.30am or after 5pm or on a Sunday we may not be quite so cheery).
