Description

Initiation to the Art of Weaving the Moroccan Carpet – Casablanca Workshop

Join us in Casablanca for a Moroccan Carpet Weaving Workshop! On this private cultural experience, you’ll visit a local carpet cooperative to learn about different styles of Moroccan carpets. Explore the meanings behind the symbols and design elements used in Moroccan carpets, and even try your hand at the loom! Moroccan carpets are synonymous with refinement and wealth, and woolen carpets as an expression of art are highly regarded and treasured throughout the world. The oldest, when well preserved, are considered most valuable. You’ll learn, for example, that “rbati” carpets take their inspiration from the architectural layout of traditional Moroccan houses called riads, while  tribal Berber designs, in contrasts, relate mostly to fertility, sexuality, survival, protection, and the natural world.
