The Fragrances and Memories of the UAE

Fragrance is an evanescent form of adornment that triggers the senses and memories. Perfume-making has a long history in the region and is a living art in the Emirates. Mona Haddad and her grandmother offer a very personal workshop, demonstrating how they create various forms of perfumes based on old family recipes. While discussing the ingredients and the alchemy of scents, they will also evoke the cultural memories that the fragrances inspire.

Working with Textiles and Design

This workshop will offer a hands-on exploration of the patterns found on everyday objects. Geometric and vegetal patterns make up over 60% of the non-figural types of decoration used in Islamic art, and are also featured prominently on many household textiles.

Under the instructor’s guidance, workshop participants will be asked to identify patterns in fabric samples provided to them, or alternatively they can bring their own material that they would like to work with. Participants will learn how to extract a pattern and create a stencil, which will then be used to produce an abstract work using various materials.
Instructor: Tima Ouzden, Editor-in-Chief of Gazette, Alumna, SEAF
