|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 7:30 pm on day First of the month, repeating until March 26, 2019

People of the (Artists’) Book:  Creating Around the Jewish  Sacred Cycle
7:00-9:30 PM, TUESDAYS, OCT. 23, NOV. 20, DEC. 11, JAN. 29, FEB. 26, MAR. 26
Our tradition teaches that the essence of each Jewish month can be expressed through a single corresponding biblical verse. Over the course of six monthly sessions, we will collaboratively create interactive artists’ books (i.e., handmade, multi-dimensional books) inspired by our investigation into these mysterious verses. Join Atiq (previously known as Beyond Noah’s Ark) and CBI  in learning and making as we explore the spiritual opportunities of every month. A gallery show at CBI at the conclusion of the series will share our work with the whole community. All levels of background in Jewish text study and art making are welcome, and all materials will be provided. This course is designed as a series, and participants (to the greatest extent possible) should expect to attend every session. Participation/materials fee: $50 (Scholarships based on need are available. Please ask!)
Adina Polen is the founder of Atiq (atiqmakers.org), a Jewish Maker Institute where people of all ages delve into  Jewish sources and create sacred material resources  for deepening personal paths of meaning. Atiq partners  with Jewish organizations throughout the Bay Are to  bring sacred art making into a wide variety of contexts,  and by November 2018 will be launching a community makerspace within the East Bay.
