Learn how to make ‘Al Naqda’ art in this workshop!


Bahrain’s Authority of Culture and Antiquities is holding a creative interactive workshop on “Al Naqda” art and techniques at Al Jasra Handicrafts Centre. The workshop will be held on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th of January (10:00AM to 12:00PM).

Al naqda art is a part of the old Bahraini traditional heritage. In those days, women’s attires were hand embroidered with real silver thread using a special needle known as “al naqda”. Nowadays, women use this technique on modern products, such as accessories, tissue boxes, handkerchief, gift bags, etc.

The workshop is open to participants 18 years old and above. The workshop will be held in English and Arabic. Registration is limited to those who have been vaccinated and recovered from the Covid-19 and have the Green Shield.
