The workshop will take place at a specialized studio, and will be open to students as well as to members of the public wishing to experience the magic of this form of art.
Guest lecturer Boris Speisman from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem will demonstrate the “tricks of the trade’.
