Sharjah museums


Recently, we've committed to visiting the healthy number of Sharjah museums. Today, with the pottery class beckoning, we headed over to the Sharjah Archeological museum - the place was roomy and very informative! Love the dioramas about the different burial sites; a very good glimpse into the UAE's past.

We were told that they sometimes arrange site visits to the digs - that would be fun. We signed up for the alerts, hopefully it's something they'll organize while the weather is still fabulous!

There was also a pottery class held today. There was a short talk on pottery and its use in the olden times as well as the styles of making them. After that, we had a terracotta session where we fashioned our own mini jars. Nice eh?

YOU DIDN'T TELL ME!!!! :(

I've always wanted to learn pottery making. Always! Like, since Ghost (the movie).
That was years ago.
I want. Still want.
