Qatar Museums (QM) will launch a series of educational cultural activities at Al Zubarah Unesco World Heritage Site, offering participants hands on experience with traditional practices.
Al Zubarah is one of the best-preserved examples of an 18th century merchant town in the Gulf region, giving rise to the varied cultural workshops that will be open to the public.
Specially-designed practical and artistic workshops will take place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from November 17, and will run for the next four months until March 3. Every Thursday and Saturday, the event will run from 2pm to 8pm and from 10am to 8pm on every Friday.
QM said the workshops aim to educate the local community about the traditional crafts and materials that played a significant role in the country’s history. It will help participants appreciate their ancestors’ skills, wisdom and heritage.
