  • In fact, it still exists-the high-quality craftsmanship! This school of handicrafts trains ceramists, carpenters, stuckateurs, jewellers and metal artists. They learn the traditional techniques to transport them into the present with new ideas in design and form. There is also a shop where the works of art can be purchased.

  • Fantastic place - incredible artists and beautiful traditional arts for sale. Lovely people too! Highly recommend.
  • The proprietor was a friendly gentleman who provided us with a demonstration of the traditional techniques and process of working with Alabaster. We had a good laugh as they gave us each a go at using the tools. The shop has beautiful carvings of animals, jugs etc. We bought some pieces to take back. I regret not taking the posting option now however as one of the pieces broke in transit on the flight :(
