About the event
About the Workshop:
Project Nakhla and From the Arabs invite us to step into both their worlds; each with a unique outlook on preserving natural material and senses. This event will begin with a talk delving into both projects and learning a bit about what inspires them, their motivations, and their aspirations. Afterwards, participants will get to experience an extraordinary candle-making workshop where each will learn the craft from start to finish, from selecting the finest waxes and fragrances inspiured by traditional Arabic scenets, to hand-pouring their very own candle.
