Protecting Levantine Crafts Through Embedded Training and Traditional Learning
This project aims to train young Syrians and Jordanians in traditional craft-work skills including mother-of-pearl inlay, woodcarving, carpentry, and wood mosaic.
The crafts skills of the Levant have been endangered by regional instability. Turquoise Mountain aims to train a new generation of Syrian and Jordanian artisans, creating a critical mass of artisans equipped to maintain these important cultural traditions.
