About Our Craft Centres
We operate three craft centres Tansghart Craft Centre, Tansghart Woodwork Centre and Tamgounssi Weaving Workshop. The centres provide young people from the local community with the training, tools and space to learn and share new skills. Each centre teaches traditional artisan craft-making – including weaving, woodworking, tailoring and embroidery. We also offer free training programmes throughout the year.
Our aim is to work with young artisans to develop high-quality products that combine traditional designs with contemporary Moroccan style. Our products are made by hand, using ancient artisanal techniques and include:
handwoven table linen
embroidered home accessories and soft furnishings
wooden carved jewellery and traditional board games
woven Berber wool carpets
It’s our promise that at least 40 per cent of the purchase price goes directly to the artisans who crafted it. The remaining amount goes directly into sustaining the core programmes and covering the running costs of the centre.
