Calligraphy and Art Workshop
February 18 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree
In January we had our first Hebrew Calligraphy and Art Workshop in which we created posters for an eastern wall in our home so that we would know which way to face when praying. Along the way, we learned a little bit from the Sefer Yetzira — a primary kabbalistic work that tells about how the letters of the Hebrew Aleph Bet were used to create the universe, and we learned a bit about the basic strokes involved in creating all the Hebrew letters.
This month, we’ll continue our learning about the 22 letters. First we’ll write out all the letters in tidy lines. Then we’ll put the letters on a wheel and imagine how they connect into 231 gates.
This workshop is for all ages. Children can play with colors and lines. Teens may discover inspiration for art and further exploration of Hebrew. Adults might swim into the depths of Jewish mysticism or just splash around in the ink for fun.
We ask that you RSVP so that we can bring enough supplies for everyone.
