The Jameel House of Traditional Arts / Jeddah

June 6-15, 2017: exhibition open daily, 9.30pm-1.00am – all welcome

The Jameel House of Traditional Arts / Jeddah celebrates the end of its first one-year programme with an exhibition by participating artisans.  For their final project, participants worked for a month on a single piece, drawing on the different modules and crafts they have explored throughout the year, each creating a major work of art in the language of the traditional arts.  Modules in the programme, which is delivered by the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, include geometry and nabati design, as well as the crafts of mangour, gypsum carving and ceramics.  The final projects, and much of the artisans’ work from throughout the year, will be on display at the exhibition, and reflects the diversity of media – woodwork, ceramics, painting and gypsum – and projects – from miniatures and tiles, through to clocks, tables and games.

The participating artisans are: Bahaa Abolenin, Denise Aboushoushah, Sahrish Ali, Rana Amoudi, Yusra Alanesi, Rania Badrig, Eman Albanjari, Salwa Bashammakh, Stephanie Delfour Berroche, Dania Gazzaz, Haneen Alhamdan, Afraa Alhazmi, Hanaan Jamal, Bayan Makki, Noura Almalouh, Carla Roma, Deema Sharbatly and Deema Showail.
