This June, the Manchester Jewish Museum will host a calligraphy session led by artist Brian Whitmore.

You’ll look at the beautiful art of calligraphy and see some of the examples of handwritten documents in the Museum’s collection for inspiration. Please feel free to bring in a short poem or piece of text that you would like to transcribe.

The workshop is 1 hour and 30 minutes long and refreshments will be provided. All materials are included. If you have any additional needs, please contact in advance.
