What is Islamic Illumination? What would we learn on this workshop? 

Islamic illumination is an art form that dates back to the 8th century. It simply means adding gold to a pattern to be bright and sparkly.  It was found to decorate Qurans. The most sophisticated and elaborate designs come from 14th to 16th centuries. The art form developed to include other types of manuscripts as well. This workshop will teach you the process of painting a pattern following the traditional painting order. Design will be provided. This art form uses real gold, but for this short workshop, you will be painting with gouache gold unless you want to paint with real gold then that can be arranged too.
