Holy scriptures. A writing workshop

Les écrits sacrés revêtent une signification particulière.
Ensemble, nous admirerons de «belles pages» et découvrirons comment elles sont nées puis ont été utilisées. Ensuite, nous réaliserons nos propres oeuvres à l’aide d’encre et de véritables pigments.
Cette activité est adaptée au niveau de la classe.
Durée: 2 h.

Visites guidées pour les classes

Holy scriptures have a special meaning. We will have a look at some «beautiful pages» and find out about their production and use. Afterwards students will have the opportunity to do some writing and designing themselves with ink on real parchment.
The workshop will be tailored to the level of each group.
Duration: 2 hours
