Following what looks like a very successful Recycling Art festival at the end of August, Darb 1718 are hosting a set of four recycling workshops this month. With sessions on the 9, 10, 16 and 17 of October from 7 to 9pm, you now have lots of opportunity to brush up on your creativity skills. According to the organisers, “the re-art workshop will teach you to use the unused stuff at your home and gives you the skill to look at it with different perspectives. You will learn to create a life full of art pieces.”
Participants are asked to bring unused materials like old newspaper, magazines, plastic bottles, cartons, soda cans, CDs, cassette tapes, jars (and anything else you can think of!) to the workshops. Darb 1718 is an Egyptian non-profit organization founded in 2008. Its premises includes a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces that host different art mediums and cultural events. It is located the historic Old Cairo. If you want to attend, you will need to reserve your place by filling in this booking form and pay a deposit. The workshop fee is 200LE.
