New Year in the Desert
Zagora December 26, 2013 - January 2, 2014
Volunteer project: The participants in this project will learn about the Moroccan artisan techniques of making pottery. They will get knowledge about how to make pottery articles, from working and preparing the earth to decorating the articles. This activity doesn't require individual skills but it demands your motivation to overcome the difficulties. All the materials needed for this activity will be provided.
One of the aims of this project is to discover the Moroccan culture and history and compare it to yours. Some cultural visits will be organised during the project. An excursion to the Sahara Desert will be also organised in the end of December for the volunteers to celebrate the New Year in the Desert.
