Photos from my workshops at the Doha Museum of Islamic Art (MIA)

Teaching one of my adult classes at the Doha Museum of Islamic Art

Hope you enjoy these photographs from my workshops at the Doha Museum of Islamic Art! In October, I delivered a week long set of Islamic manuscript illumination workshops where I taught adults and children, and provided training to museum staff in teaching Islamic art to the public. I also gave a demonstration to visitors in the beautiful museum atrium. The workshops and demo were a great success, and the MIA published a nice little write up on the museum blog (see image below):

Works in progress!

A workshop held for museum educators: students practice their brushwork by learning about traditional leaf forms used in illumination
