Fan Jameel (beautiful art) Foundation, which supports heritage, education and arts, announced the implementation of a one-month summer program for the revival of traditional crafts in the tourist village of Tunis, Fayoum Governorate.
Over the course of four weeks, the youngsters engage in a program of workshops focusing on the unique heritage of Fayoum Governorate. These workshops include Islamic arts, copper works, printing, and ceramics, which is one of the most popular activities in Fayoum. This free program is the first major project of Fan Jamil outside Cairo.
The foundation was established in 2009 and offers a two-year program of handicrafts and design arts in a joint project between Fan Jamil, the Prince Charles School of Traditional Arts Foundation and the Cultural Development Fund of Egypt.
It is worth mentioning that the village of Tunis offers the finest Egyptian hand-made pottery products.
