Learn to recognise Christian symbols

90 minutes Max 20 people40 euros per group

In Christianity, symbols are one of the most principal elements, which are found everywhere: in textiles, paintings, silver and gold jewellery, and architecture. After learning their meanings, you will be able to read Christian artwork like a book. What does a cross, an eye, a triangle, or a dove symbolise? While admiring beautiful liturgical vessels, decipher the language of symbols and learn to make jewellery using the shrink plastic technique. Using this special technique, you will be able to easily make a pendant decorated in meaningful Christian symbols. It might even become a protective talisman.
