Description of Activity
Invite participants to make their own scrolls with words describing the experiences of exile and hope. Note that while Isaiah used a scroll of animal skin, we use drawing paper and dowels. Use packing tape to attach the shorter side of a sheet of drawing paper to a dowel, and then attach a dowel to the opposite short side, so the paper can be rolled like a scroll, bringing the dowels together.
After participants create scrolls, invite them to use calligraphy pens or fine-point markers to write and draw about the experiences of exile and of hope. As time allows, share drawings with one another.
