I am thirty three, I live in new Cairo and I currently work as a procurement manager in a local steel company. Over the past 10 years since my graduation I have been working in the field of Engineering. However, I realized the importance of dedicating my time and efforts towards finding my passion and shifting my career accordingly towards a happier and more fulfilling life! I took the decision in 2016, and started to explore and learn new skills, I applied in different arts and crafts workshops like Wood carving and wood veneer, till I was introduced to Islamic Art for the first time in Beit El Sehimy-a historical place in Cairo- that was when I felt in love with this beautiful Art. and that was when the journey began! I am planning to give workshops, primarily in Cairo, but I am also flexible to deliver workshops in any other governorate across Egypt, and I don’t mind to travel abroad as well, if I found a good offer.
I am targeting both children and adults, starting from 8 years old and I am planning to give workshops in Schools, Universities, Cultural Hubs, and Arts and Crafts Centers. Other than Islamic Art , I love woodworking and I am also interested in reading and creative writing.
General workshops for all ages and special workshops for children, ages 8 to 12.
I am very excited to be a teacher for the School of Islamic Geometric Design!
I have been researching and constructing Islamic geometric designs since 2010. In that time, I acquired and thoroughly read and utilized most books on the topic. I have also spent countless hours scouring the internet for pertinent information, which has included networking with fellow craftsmen from all over the world.
In 2016, I spent six weeks living in Fes el Bali, Morocco, apprenticing with professional tile craftsmen.I was trained how to construct Zellige tiles by hand (which are complex geometric ceramic tiles). My time spent in Morocco was also a great opportunity to research, in person, some of the finest Islamic geometric compositions in the world.
With all of this experience, I have created many original works of fine art, and hope to help others do the same.
As a teacher I am offering,
-Youth workshops (ages 8-12)
-Teen workshops (ages 13-17)
-General Workshops (ages 18 and up)
I am available in the all of the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. However, with expenses paid, I am available worldwide.
