Tilework of the Islamic World

For visitors of all ages

Peek at technique and learn—through handling tools and materials—how works of art were created.

This program is part of Love Speaks: A Day of Art and Poetry from the Muslim World, an exploration of the many facets of love through poetry performances, workshops, and artist demonstrations in the New Galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, and Later South Asia, followed by a special Sunday at the Met. Co-organized with Poets House and City Lore.

Made possible by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
