Zirlaki Mirror Frame Painting Workshop

Join Roxana Manouchehri for an introductory workshop in zirlaki painting. This antique Persian technique was first used on papier-mache objects, mostly mirror frames, pencil cases, book covers and small jewellery boxes. Popular patterns and decorative motifs are tazhib (gilding) with birds and flowers. You can add a festive touch by incorporating holly leaves and robins.

€45.00 pp, all materials including mirrors and frames provided.
