July was an incredible creative month for our Silk Worm and Teens Clubs. Silk Worms (aged 6-11 years) produced an array of Persian-inspired works – from ceramic tile making to collages and miniature paintings – and each took home a miniature garden, made with the help of artist Susanna Padja.
Our teens (aged 12-14 & 15-17 years) immersed themselves in the traditions of Persian arts and crafts with Iranian artist Roxana Manouchehri and completed their week with a visit to the Dublin Maker and Festival of Curiosity, where they tried and tested an array of scientific, arts, crafts, engineering explorations on offer. This was followed by a visit to Urban Escape exhibition in Temple Bar Galleries.
Calligrapher Mustafa Ja’far demonstrated his exquisite calligraphy technique for our general public and in a workshop for adults.
