The Crossway Foundation, in collaboration with artist Adam Williamson, organised a series of workshops at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, as part of Qatar UK 2013.
The workshops were a practical introduction to the principles of Islamic pattern and how they can be expanded into structures. Participants then worked as a team to build a large wooden dome in the Museum's atrium.
Create & Inspire 2012 Films

Arabia Offscreen Films
In December last year, a group of nine young artists, photographers and filmmakers from the UK, Egypt, Malaysia, Qatar and the UAE set out on a creative journey of a lifetime across Saudi Arabia: Arabia Offscreen.
The team was given unprecedented access to one of the most fascinating and inspiring cultures in the world and as a result, have created a series of films, which can be seen on www.offscreenexpedition.com
