Join Nour Hage as she weaves a story of textiles in West Asia, from bridal practices, to talismanic symbols, to Nour’s own work as an artist. Listen as she discusses her work on Leighton House’s recent Kheit exhibition, as part of our Hands On Islamic Art project which works to engage the UK public with Islamic art. Our Hands On Islamic Art project is made possible with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
