Times Square Center (TSC), one of the newest community oriented shopping centers in Dubai, has announced that it will be hosting its last Arts and Crafts Souk for the season on June 12, 2009 from 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m. Once again with the Arts and Crafts Souk, TSC will be offering a different kind of shopping experience with a wide array of authentic homemade food items like pastries and cakes and special handcrafted items like jewellery and accessories. The souk will also feature some of the UAE’s best contemporary artwork created by the members of the Artisans of the Emirates (ARTE) group.

“The Arts and Crafts Souk which is held once a month at Times Square Center has been a major attraction for visitors as it gives them an opportunity to purchase high quality handcrafted products within the comforts of a shopping center. Despite today’s technological advancements and latest manufacturing techniques, handmade items still remain extremely popular because it truly embodies the creativity and skill of the craftsperson,” said Pierre Issa, Director for Operations, Sharaf Industries.

The stalls featuring the works of members of the ARTE group are a major highlight during the Souk. The ARTE stalls will feature handmade items like decorations, individualist pieces of jewellery, accessories, artwork and photography. Demonstrations will also be made in knitting and embroidery by ARTE members. The post-summer Arts and Crafts Souk will resume on September 18.
