The Aon Celtic Apprenticeship Program exists to promote the ancient art form of Celtic design. Each program runs for a series of 6 or 8 weeks and covers advanced topics with the benefit of personalized feedback and direction in the format of apprenticeship style instruction.
An apprentice may take any of the programs any number of times, until they feel they have gained a full mastery of the concepts before moving on. There is no grading or "pass" "fail" system as the courses are presented according to the student's needs. The Knotwork Interlace and the Spirals programs are "open level" courses, and topics will be approached at the student's individual level based on previous experience and progress. The Zoomorphics A & B courses have a prerequisite of the Knotwork Interlace course, as techniques covered require an in-depth understanding of how knotting works.
For any of the apprenticeship programs you will need a reliable e-mail address and access to the internet. Each week you will be emailed a PDF package of new material for your next weeks instruction. The package will contain any feedback and critiques from the previous week, the new topic to be covered, examples for study, and your assignment for the upcoming week.
