About this event

Join this 2 day adult workshop on an Introduction to Qalam-kari patterns at Chester Beatty this August.

Qalam-kari is the traditional Persian art of stamping colourful designs onto fabric using a heavy wooden stamp carved with shapes inspired by nature. During this two-day workshop, artist Roxana Manouchehri will introduce you to traditional qalam-kari patterns but instead of carving wood, we will use lino to create our stamps. Natural dyes and cotton will be provided. This event has been organised to highlight Heritage Week.

Limited to 15 Participants, €75 per person. Booking essential.

This is a 2-day workshop: Sat 20 & Sun, 21 August from 12:00 to 17:00.
