ART-Tar: The Art of Aromatherapy in the Muslim World – 22 November

It is used for therapeutic, spiritual, hygienic and ritualistic purpose by the ancient civilisations from Persian, Egyptians to Greeks and was improved by the invention of steam distillation by Ibn Sina. Come to this workshop and discover the art of Attar and have your senses uplifted. This refreshing journey will enlighten your mind beyond wonders.

Hafsa Hasan is a holistic therapist and mother of five children who has been passionate about holistic learning and living from a young age. Fortunate in being mentored and taught by healers versed in both eastern and western modalities, as well as being raised in a homeopathic family, Hafsa has accumulated knowledge and skills in a variety of disciplines.

From the art and science of using herbs and homeopathy to hands-on and somatic body/mind approaches to healing.
For more than ten years now she has been practicing and honing her craft to enhance her own family’s well-being as well as touching the lives of many people around her in the Middle East, UK and now Malaysia.

Her journey has taken her from working with children and women facing abuse, stress, learning and personal development challenges to teaching aspects of Avicenna’s metaphysics.

At present she offers a ‘Gentle Remedies’ programme to enhance wellness. She also conducts skillful and intuitive one-on-one sessions that facilitate deep healing states by releasing the subtle traumatic and life-baggage causes of physical, emotional and mental pain.

A Glimpse Into Fez – 7 November

We’ve got a treat for you this Saturday Night! We have Hamza from Fez giving a demonstration (with hands-on) on Islamic Geometry with Paper-Card Embroidery, and also a delicious taste of Moroccan culture with his Oud (“gitar arab”) playing skills.

Joining Hamza for a jam will be local talents:
Sein al-Qudsy: ex-Ruffedge member, RnB and Hiphop artist, actor and film-maker; and
Husni: social artist, and percussionist.

Don’t know who Hamza is?

Hamza el-Fasiki is an apprentice artisan etcher in the copper-smith craft, learning the trade from his father, who has been etching on copper tea trays since 1969.
Earlier, he had started his musical studies in 1999, and began a musical career by 2004. He is an Andalusian musician and plays four instruments; Classical Guitar, Andalusian Oud (that’s “Gitar Arab” to you and me ;-P ), Harmonica and Ukulele.
He is founder of Craft Draft social business in Fez which aims at preserving the Moroccan craft through bringing it to the masses.
