Join Museum Educator and Artist Maria Yoon for a tour of the exhibition Medieval Money, Merchants, and Morality, after which, you will craft your very own illuminated letter. During this creative process, participants will get to use historical artists’ techniques to work with traditional tools and ingredients like gold leave, saffron threads, dried insects, and malachite chips. It’s going to be a delightful and enriching experience! Materials will be provided
