To wrap-up our Scottish Interfaith Week 2022 programme, our biggest indoor event of the year is back: our Interfaith Family Fun Day!

At the heart of this event will be our ‘faith table workshops’ at which children and their families learn about different religious traditions through participation in arts and crafts activities. Specially chosen to illuminate a particular aspect of a tradition, past activities have included, for example, making Baha’i prayer beads, Christmas tree decorations, Sikh kalgis, and mini Torah scrolls; painting Hindu diya lamps and Pagan stones; and having a go at Arabic calligraphy. A ‘Try it on’ area, moreover, offers people a chance to try on clothing from diverse cultures and religions, such as Sikh and Sufi turbans, Jewish kippahs, Muslim hijabs, Japanese kimonos, Indian saris, and Christian altar vestments.

The event is supported by fantastic volunteers from Glasgow’s faith communities who demonstrate the craft activities and help people try on the clothing from their tradition, explaining their significance. Everyone is welcome – join us for an afternoon of conversation, good food, and diverse entertainment!
