On the lookout for a unique workshop? Try this fossilized flower workshop for Dhs550. You will be guided on how to arrange a selection of flowers that you will press into clay. The result is an embossed floral piece which you will later paint for a more colourful look. There are two classes on the day: 10am to 1pm and 5pm to 8pm. Supplies are included in the price. To book your spot, give the team a call and there are plenty of other classes you can pick from, too.
