About The Workshop DXB and Ahmad Makary | When childhood friends Ahmad Makary and Moe Krayem came together more than seven years ago to experiment with an old silk screening machine, neither of them expected it to be the start of a long, creative venture. Joined by an urgent curiosity to learn a new craft and a passion for the DIY culture, both Ahmad and Moe quickly found themselves answering to an increasing number of orders for t-shirts and tote bags from friends and family. It was the birth of The Workshop, born in Beirut but now based in Dubai.

Almost a decade later, Ahmad and Moe have come to learn a thing or two about silk screening, and have mastered the art form – with The Workshop’s large portfolio ranging from textiles to poster prints, corporate runs to start-up collaborations. Now experienced printmakers and avid craftsmen, the founders of The Workshop look forward to evolving their craft.
