In our project the participants will get in touch with the Moroccan artisan techniques to work pottery. They will get knowledge about how to do pottery articles from working and preparing the earth to decorating the articles . This activity doesn't require individual skills but it demands your motivation to overcome all difficulties. One of the aims of those camps is to discover the Moroccan culture and history and compare this to yours. The training course will be in the morning from 9 to 12 , if needed some courses could be given in the afternoon.
*Standard: 3 hours of daily instruction (18 hours per week)
*Accommodation and meals with Moroccan hosting families.
*Cultural and social activities.
*Guided historical tour of the 'city' of Safi, its monuments and traditional pottery crafts of our city.
*Concert of Moroccan music.
Fine pottery and ceramics come from Safi as they are beautifully displayed with their rich designs, styles, and colors. Each of Safi pieces is wheel thrown and hand finished by the skilled artisans of Safi . Most safiot pottery pieces are elaborately trimmed with tooled silver overlay. These exquisite pieces of art will finely accent any room.
Tourist and Cultural Activities:
After classes are over for the day, our program allows you plenty of time to discover your new country, culture and customs. Our optional cultural and social activities allow you to make new friends among your new classmates, experience cultural activities together and practice your new language skills in real life situations.
These are the first things that come to mind when speaking about free time. Participants will probably be interested to visit some local art galleries or museums, see the sights, get to know the local countryside/seaside, etc.
Being a student is a chance for you to get to know the country "from the inside", and experience more than a normal tourist.
