The overall aim of this workshop is to delve into the world of scents. Dukhoon is a form of bakhoor made with a traditional blend of perfume-soaked wood chips mixed with various combinations of botanical ingredients for a series of uniquely luxurious fragrances. The project will provide participants with an opportunity to illustrate stories in a sensual context and have the story come to life through scent. The students will be introduced to the world of Dukhoon making, an old UAE tradition.
In our fast paced world, we are consistently blasted with notifications and visual images that we don't really stop and think about our other senses. Our senses such as taste, touch, smell and sound. Now, what if we imagine a world where in order for us to survive, we only use our sense of scent? Through this workshop, we will be removing scent from the unconscious and bring it to the forefront of the discussion.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Participants will start to tap into their senses and discover the materials of scent
Gain knowledge on a different form of making through scent
Create a final incense through the making process (Dukhoon)
