Workshops: WRITTEN IN THE STARS | Monika Krajewska
“A well-known wish, mazel tov, literally means: under a constellation of good stars” – says Monika Krajewska. Her story of how the celestial bodies were presented in Jewish art, with special focus on the very popular zodiac decorations in synagogues, will be an introduction to art workshops. Participants of the workshops will be using different art techniques, particularly collage with fragments of reproductions, decorative papers, and ready Hebrew texts.
Monika Krajewska has been focusing on Jewish art for more than 30 years. She is the author of albums with photographs picturing Jewish cemeteries: “Time of Stones” and “A Tribe of Stones.” She runs Jewish art workshops and develops artworks inspired by the traditional Jewish paper cutting.
