Naqsh or Etching

  
Today we had a lesson at brass working craft shop.  

The children practiced brass etching with traditional material with a master craftsman.  

  

The craftsman showed us how to make a pattern on a bracelet and taught the children to use the hammer.

   
We hope the children will have another workshop again soon.  This workshop also offers drum lessons, calligraphy and Islamic geometry.  We are excited to see what the children can learn next. 

We are interested in the children having the opportunity to learn traditional Islamic crafts whenever possible.  We are excited to pursue this opportunity and hope that many other beautiful traditions become available for young Muslims to learn.  

The workshop has a Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/Craft.Draft.Fez/

  

Please contribute your experiences and ideas for practicing traditional Islamic crafts with children so that we can share the beauty of Islamic arts with all of our children.
