Fancy trying your hand at pottery or even playing the oud? Then head to the ‘Family Day’ event on 14th September. Families and friends can attend interactive workshops on such subjects.
If history is more your bag, then head on a trip to the ‘Journey of an Object’.
This session highlights the important role museums can play in preserving history and cultural heritage.
Pottery rears its head again but this time its harks back to the days of yore. A clay jug dating all the way back to the Iron Age and loaned from the Al Ain Museum will be on display at Al Qattara Arts Centre until 31st October.
Don’t miss out on a photography session on 14th September at Qasr Al Muwaiji. Then it get’s all majestic on the 17th September when the spotlight shines on the’Royal Bisht’ (popular men’s cloak), a traditional garment of the Gulf region.
But wait for it…
There will even be several Royal Bishts from the personal collection of the Al Nahyan family on show.
Visitors can also head straight back to life in the early twentieth century on the 28th September. The exhibition ‘Characters from the 20th Century’ transports visitors to interact with silent art presentations to experience how life was that era.
