Children's Workshop in Traditional Crafts
A popular children's workshop will introduce children of from 10 to 16 years old to the surprising discoveries of the traditional arts – from drawing to paper-folding to wonders of the natural world. Participating children will learn about shapes, symmetry, basic geometry, in a fun and creative environment, delivered by instructors from the Jameel House of Traditional Arts / Jeddah. The workshop is open to 20 children.
Opened in 2015 in a traditional coral-stone house in the heart of the Old Town (Al-Balad) of Jeddah as a partnership between Art Jameel and the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, the Jameel House of Traditional Arts / Jeddah is a major educational programme that focuses on Islamic geometry, patterns and design, nabati ornaments, colour harmony and decorative techniques, woodwork, gypsum-carving and other traditional crafts within the rich architectural heritage of the Old Town.
**Workshop for 10 -16 years old
