Art from Nature: Tempera Paint Workshop
DIY Workshop Kit

Pera Kids

Do you know that artists used to manufacture their own paint in the past? Would you like to produce your own paint, and then paint on handmade paper just like them?

In this workshop, we prepare tempera paints from powder pigments used in historical miniatures, as well as eggs. Then using these tempera paints, we draw shapes and patterns on handmade paper produced by recycling. Through this activity, we discover the joy of producing paint from natural materials, and letting our imagination free in our paintings. 

Important Information:
The required materials and the video on stages of production will be delivered by cargo.

Everyone purchasing this workshop will be entitled to participate in the guided online exhibition tour on 26 November 2020 and 24 December 2020 at 17:00. The online guided tours will be in Turkish.

Medicinal Herbs in Byzantium

Medicinal Herbs in Byzantium

Knowledge of plants and the practice of healing are closely entwined. The toxic or hallucinogenic nature of some roots, and the dangers associated with picking them, conferred a mythical or magical character and power.

The shrines that created the glory of Constantinople through their lavish beauty were also repositories of precious relics and thus sources of healing. 

Demons, Symbols, and the Cosmos

Demons, Symbols, and the Cosmos

Beliefs surrounding illness and healing in Byzantium stem from the myths, astrology, and magic practiced around the Mediterranean by Jews, Egyptians, Mesopotamians, and Greeks.
