Persian Flower Illumination Evening Workshop with Esra Alhamal

Please note that in addition to the free workshops provided by Manifesting the Unseen we are also hosting some paid for workshops led by our artists.

Islamic illumination includes a lot of elements including flowers and this is a two-hour evening workshop to introduce you to Persian flowers in their various forms. You will be able to paint a small Persian flower with gouache gold and other colours to take home with you.

This is a great opportunity to make a beautiful and sparkly handmade card for the winter occasions.
