Medieval gloves

Postby calicocloth » Tue Aug 14, 2007 7:13 pm

This is a bit late in the day, but I have been unable to get hold of any medieval off-white leather gloves for our film shoot on Sunday!! Can anyone hire or lend us a pair or two for the shoot (harvesting scene). See the picture and our web site http://www.luttrellpsalter.org.uk/

I could lend you a pair of three fingered gloves, light tan colour.

Thank you - I should very much like to borrow them for a future shoot as there are a number of three-fingered gloves worn. Unfortunately, all the gloves in this scene are five-fingered, almost gauntlet in style and in an off-white leather. One pair is tucked into the workers belt, so we can get away with gloves that don't fit, but the rest are wearing them. I didn't think this was going to be so difficult!!!

Try talking nicely to your local St. John Ambulance - they may be prepared to loan their ceremonial gloves

Thanks (Black Serpent). I left it a bit late to start this search, but it looks as though there were lots of options out there.

In the end we acquired a number of pairs of ladies gloves, stretched them over our actors hands and dried them under the hand drier at the studio! It worked well, except in one case when the leather shrunk!

We filmed the harvesting scene on Sunday (in spite of the awful weather) and you can see the pictures on the web site: www.luttrellpsalter.org.uk

Luttrell Psalter Film Update

Postby calicocloth » Wed Dec 31, 2008 4:20 pm

The 20 minute Luttrell Psalter Film is now avaiable on DVD. The film follows a year in the life of a medieval village as illustrated in the Psalter (incidentaly, we re-shot the harvest this year to catch better weather).

The DVD also includes an interview with Michelle Brown (author of the Facsimile Edition of the Luttrell Psalter), early music musicians demonstrating the instruments illustrated in the Psalter and the choir singing the plainchant from the Psalter itself in Irnham Church. You can purchase the DVD through our web site www.luttrellpsater.org.uk

All the profits from the sales will go towards making the Luttrell Psalter Part II on the life of Sir Geoffrey Luttrell and his household.
