This hands on workshop introduces teenagers to the art of manuscript illumination from the Islamic tradition. Artist Sister Unaiza Karim will offer students an opportunity to produce a small decorative roundel 'shamsa' or ornamental tree motif 'shujaira' on hand treated paper (both motifs are commonly found in the decorated margins of illuminated Qurans).
