House Of Artisans To Launch Special Programme In Collaboration With Al Ghadeer Crafts
(10 January 2019)


The House of Artisans, part of the new Al Hosn cultural site, has announced the launch of a special three-month training programme teaching the skills behind a wide range of traditional Emirati crafts. Run in partnership with Al Ghadeer Crafts, the programme is offering a variety of workshops geared towards individuals and families.

Workshops cover such subjects as traditional Emirati burqa design, Khoos weaving, dyeing natural fibres, Talli (decorative yarn), Sadu weaving, Emirati incense making, Finjan (coffee cup) making, henna production and traditional doll making. The programme also includes workshops inspired by traditional methods, such as ink printing on modern tote bags.

Visitors will participate in this series of workshops, dedicated to the traditions and knowledge passed on by ancestors through the generations. The House of Artisans provides support to those who continue to practice traditional crafts, as well as those creating more contemporary products inspired by these practices. This partnership with Al Ghadeer Crafts perfectly complements DCT’s efforts to preserve and promote the Emirate's intangible cultural heritage.

The House of Artisans serves as a focal point for the promotion and preservation of the UAE’s tangible and intangible heritage. The crafts represented in House of Artisans celebrate the creative and artistic relationship developed by our ancestors with natural and local resources. Within the diverse landscapes of the UAE - from the desert, to the oases, to the coast and sea – over the centuries artisans have developed skills to meet functional and economic needs. Passed on from generation to generation, this intangible heritage is part of the shared values associated with Emirati identity.
