In this hands-on, one-day workshop, learn the delicate art of gold and color leaf and create a miniature illuminated manuscript of your own. 

First, take a ten-minute magic carpet ride across the history of Jewish books from the dawn of writing to today. Then, learn basic gilding technique and create an illuminated manuscript of your first or last name using gold and color leaf.

Prior to the session, please think about elements of your life that you would like to reflect in your design.

Instructor: Debra Band has worked in the Hebrew manuscript arts for more than twenty years. She is the author of The Song of Songs: The Honeybee in the Garden, an original illuminated manuscript and commentary, and Arise! Arise! Deborah, Ruth and Hannah, also an illuminated manuscript. Her original work has been in solo and group exhibits worldwide.

Teens welcome.
