Participants in this workshop will learn how to use the traditional hijab fabric to create a burga’ [decorative face mask worn mostly by older Emirati women]. They will prepare the other parts of the burga’ (i.e. betana [lining], shubug [string used to tie the burqa] and seif [light rectangular stick] to hold the burga’ straight) and stitch these to the hijab fabric using a needle and thread. Finally, they will rub the surface of the burga’ to achieve a shiny metallic finish. Participants will also learn how to make talli [decorative braided trim] by combining ribbon woven from cotton threads with strips of gold or silver.
