Pottery making in Lebanon: A traditional craft on its way to extinction || Newspapers (Arabic)


According to a report published by Al Nahar, pottery making in Lebanon is more than a few thousand years all and is a distinct traditional and generational know how in the village of Rashayya al Fakhar.  The report notes that this age old skills is very much neglected and has shrunk considerably as a result of lack of investment and absence of marketing outlets as well as the indifference of the young generation.  To date, only two pottery workshops remain from the forty workshops documented in the fifties.  Although there is now a cooperative specialized in pottery making, it has yet to become fully operational especially since its premises are not fully ready yet.
