Overview

Did you know that date palms are the staple food of the region? But it goes way beyond that! The branches and leaves of these flowering plants are used for purposes of traditional weaving.

Keen to learn more? Embrace the creative and historical side of the UAE and its local natural resources with 'Handicrafts at the Oasis'. This programme aims to introduce visitors to the traditional crafts of the UAE, helping to preserve the country’s cultural heritage.

Besides Al Safafah (the traditional weaving of date palm leaves), several other workshops will also be held, including pottery creation and decoration.

For more information and registration, call 037118251 or e-mail to [email protected].

**This programme is available on Wednesdays only
