Tour Highlights
We would be delighted if you could join us on our Morocco Ceramic Tour, April 2020. This will be a very special opportunity to share your love of clay with the excitement of travelling to an exotic destination full of colour, music, delicious food, history and dramatic landscapes such as the Rif & Atlas mountains ranges.
We will gain hands on experience with artisan potters in a 3 day ceramic workshop in Tanmegroute, including watching demonstrations and the centuries old methods for firing their large urns & cooking vessels decorated with Henna designs.
While visiting the main ceramics districts of Safi, Fez, Meknes & Tamegroute we will learn about traditional Moroccan ceramics with their multicoloured designs, featuring Moorish-influenced geometric or floral motifs. Safi pottery is known for its metal inlays and is often made of red clay and glazed in green, turquoise and black. Much of the pottery from Fez captures the beauty of blue and white decoration on refined thrown forms, while the most rustic forms can be seen in the emerald green coloured pottery of Tamegroute.
We will also enjoy a 1 day cooking class with a Berber family; and experience numerous iconic highlights such as the Menara & Majorelle Gardens, the Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah Monument, National Ceramics Museum, Ouvira Oasis, imperial cities, museums, souk markets, medinas, palaces & renowned restaurants.
Not to mention an overnight stay in the magical blue city of Chefchaouen and 4 wheel drive expeditions into the Erg Chebbi & Merzouga Dunes with a night of stars in a Berber desert camp!
