Micrography, the art of creating images with tiny writing, is a traditional form of decorating Hebrew texts. It was popular from the ninth century onwards, and is used by artists to this day. This workshop will take you through examples of micrography and show how it is related to the calligram, an Islamic form of decorative calligraphy, and to modern art forms.
This introduction to micrography and the examples provided will inspire you to draw pictures with words. Bring your own poem or piece of writing to illuminate.
Participants are requested to wear face masks (spares will be provided).
