Overview

Organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), Qasr Al Muwaiji’s monthly Family Day Workshop series will return for its fourth instalment in Al Ain. Open to all and free of charge, the interactive creative session will invite visitors to learn to paint pottery and explore the historic significance of ceramic painting to Emirati heritage. 

Regarded as one of the oldest handicraft trades in the UAE, pottery is an integral part of Emirati history with pottery still widely displayed and sold at roadside bazaars in the UAE to this day. 

Participants in the workshop will get a chance to learn more about the history of the craft and decorate, colour, and paint their chosen pieces of pottery. 

The Family Day Workshop is held once a month to explore various topics through creative and artistic mediums. The series also aims to engage families and children in exploring the history and culture of the UAE, while raising awareness and promoting Emirati heritage.
