Dubai Design Week is just around the corner, and there’s plenty on offer for kids.
Taking place from Monday November 12 to Saturday November 17, there’s a line-up of workshops that are perfect for young ones and will boost their artistic skills.
The Making Space pop-up will be offering a five-day programme conducted by a wide group of UAE based regional and international designers and professional creatives.
It will include different workshops for all ages on the processes behind design and creativity – ranging from modelling, sculpting and 3D printing to weaving and sketching.
If your kids are interested in physical modelling, the workshop by Sharabassy Built Environment Studio will do the trick. Suitable for youngsters aged eight to 16, the Dhs100 session will teach them to capture ideas, concepts and realities through a system of representation.
Kids and teens of the same age range can also sign up for the sketching workshop, which will explain different techniques.
Dubai Design Week is a free-to-attend programme which will comprise of more than 230 events throughout Dubai Design District (d3) and across the city.
Coinciding with the event, this November will see the official opening of the Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai’s first contemporary arts museum, the inaugural Fikra Graphic Design Biennial in Sharjah, the first of its kind in the region and a range of activities staged at Alserkal Avenue.
