The participants in this project will learn about the Moroccan artisan techniques of making pottery and about Arabic language. They will get knowledge about how to make pottery articles, from working and preparing the earth to decorating the articles. These activities don't require individual skills but demand your motivation to overcome the difficulties. All the materials needed for the activities will be provided.
The program is also an opportunity for the participants to explore Moroccan culture and learn how to cook Moroccan dishes. Cultural visits will be organised to places in South Morocco (oasis, desert, mountain, kasbah, river). An excursion to the Sahara Desert will be organised, during which the volunteers can ride camels and listen nomadic music.
Cultural exchange is an important part of the project, and volunteers will be invited to present their countries and cultures. The volunteers will also attend an Arabic language workshop.
Language: English or French
Project dates: April 22 - April 29, 2013
