In this workshop, participants will learn how to produce textile prints using the sun and local plants that grow in the UAE desert. Participants will learn a new textile dying technique that uses a light sensitive dye to capture the form of the plants on fabric.

This workshop aims to teach participants a new textile dying technique while promoting knowledge and appreciation of the often-neglected flora of the local environment.
