This Saturday from morning until night there is something cool to do in Sharjah.

The Sharjah Art Foundation is organising free workshops for children aged 5-15 in silk screen printing, wire sculpting and creative movement. Taught by artists, the workshops will take place at SAF Art Spaces, Bait Hussein Abdul Rasoul.

Free art workshops for children will take place all day this Saturday

Later in the day, an open forum for artists, architects, landscape designers is being hosted to encourage the public to participate in the development of the UAE's first urban garden. Intended as a collective space, the garden will provide a social, learning and creative site for local communities and it is important to get feedback from creative people for its design. The meetings are open to the public and will take place every two weeks. The first is in Building GH, SAF Art Spaces, Al Mureijah at 5.30pm.
