Eid al-Adha, also known as the "Festival of Sacrifice", is a significant holiday celebrated by Muslims around the world. Muslims share Eid greetings by saying "Eid Mubarak", which translates to "Happy Eid."

This holiday commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah (God), and Allah's mercy in providing a ram to be sacrificed in his son's place. Muslims continue to commemorate this event by sacrificing a sheep during Eid al-Adha. It can also be a goat, cow or camel. The meat is usually shared among family and friends, and donated to the poor and needy.

To celebrate this important occasion, we are hosting an Eid Mubarak banner making workshop at Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub.

During the workshop, children will have the opportunity to create their own Eid Mubarak banner using a variety of materials such as pencils, textas, stickers, and more. They will learn about the significance of Eid al-Adha and its importance in the Islamic faith.

At the end of the workshop, each child will have a unique and personalised Eid Mubarak banner to take home and display with pride.

Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to celebrate Eid al-Adha with your children! Register today and join us at the Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub for an engaging and creative banner making workshop.

Please note: this workshop is held at the Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub. All participants are required to meet directly at the venue.

This workshop is supported by Banyule City Council.
