Bedouin weaving workshop (Petra area) – workshops in Jordan
One of the great workshops in Jordan you we can organize for you is this weaving workshop. Experience centuries old Bedouin weaving on the ground loom with the weaving women of Bedoubag. Bedoubag is a sustainable project that aims to empower local women, keep their weaving tradition alive and inspire young women to learn a craft. Meet the women and children in their home, create a (yoga) belt or colorful placemat on the ground loom, have lunch together, finalize in the afternoon and return home with your exclusive souvenir in traditional Bedouin stripe patterns that will bring you joy for years to come. Hand made by you & um Hussein, an experience not to forget. For more information on the project: http://www.bedoubag.com
