Al Jasra Handicrafts Centre
Wide range of indigenous handicrafts is kept alive in Al Jasra 2 Reviews
A vast range of indigenous handicrafts is kept alive and well at this centre. It has workshops for artisans, including mat weaving, basket making, pottery and boat building. The enthusiastic staff and craftsmen encourage visitors to take a close look at how items are made, and offer a full explanation of the technical processes involved. One highlight is watching the friendly women who come down to the centre daily to weave mats from plain and brightly-coloured dampened palm fronds. The centre also houses a number of makers of musical instruments, tanners and silk weavers.
