“It gives us great pleasure to host the workshop which comes as part of the Handicrafts Directorate’s efforts to provide craftsmen with training opportunities in order to develop their skills and abilities to create high quality products that will stand out regionally. The Handicrafts Directorate will also host other workshops throughout the year including forged iron, product packaging, leather crafting, hand embroidery and many more,” said the Director of Handicrafts Directorate, Shaikha Wafa Saif Al Khalifa.

Hosting such workshops throughout the year comes in line with the BTEA’s keenness to preserve the Kingdom’s crafts and traditional industries for future generations.
