Handshouse at Haystack Conference July 12 - 16


Recovering History Through Art
In this workshop we will reveal two of “The Three Secrets of the Universe” and in a process, of learn-by–doing, investigate the processes used in a small village in 18th century Poland to create a magnificent ceiling painting on wooden panels. Students working together will replicate (using only materials, tools, and techniques of the time) a section of the Gwozdziec synagogue ceiling painting. Everyone will contribute and everyone will learn. No painting skills required.
