Hey kids,

Start 2024 on a creative high and join us for some fun activities in January. 

This summer, the Islamic Museum of Australia invites families and art enthusiasts to embark on a journey of creativity and cultural exploration with its exciting Summer School Holiday Program. Packed with engaging workshops, this program offers a unique opportunity for participants to learn, create, and connect with the rich tapestry of Islamic art and traditions.

Workshops Galore!

1. Felt Decorations

   Kickstart the holiday fun by diving into the vibrant world of felt crafting. Participants of all ages can create personalized decorations inspired by Islamic art motifs, adding a touch of cultural flair to their homes.

2. Yarn Mandalas

   Immerse yourself in the meditative art of yarn mandalas. Discover the symbolism behind these intricate designs and let your imagination run wild as you craft your own, exploring the beauty and symmetry inherent in Islamic geometric patterns.

3. Miniature Paintings with an Iznik Design

   Unleash your inner artist as you delve into the world of miniature paintings. Drawing inspiration from the exquisite Iznik ceramics, participants will create their own masterpieces, capturing the essence of this renowned Turkish art form.

4. Mini Basket Weaving

   Get hands-on with a traditional craft that spans cultures. Participants will learn the art of mini basket weaving, connecting with the rich history of basketry and creating their own miniature wonders.

5. Coffee around the World - One for the Young at Heart

   For those who appreciate a good cup of coffee, this workshop is a delightful journey through the world of coffee culture. From bean to cup, participants will explore the diverse ways coffee is enjoyed in different cultures, creating a unique blend of knowledge and fun.

Why Attend?

The Summer School Holiday Program at the Islamic Museum of Australia is not just about crafting; it's a holistic experience that blends hands-on creativity with cultural enrichment. Participants will gain insights into the artistic traditions of Islam while fostering a sense of community and understanding.

The museum's commitment to education and inclusivity is evident in each workshop, providing a space where families and individuals can come together to celebrate diversity and creativity.

How to Join:

To be part of this enriching experience, simply check the Islamic Museum of Australia's website for the workshop schedule and registration details. Spaces are limited, so be sure to secure your spot early for an unforgettable summer holiday adventure.
