4.1
#2 of 11 in Museums in Fes
A highly esteemed manufacturer of traditional Moroccan ceramics, Art D'Argile offers a wide range of home decor and furniture, from kitchenware to dining tables and fountains. The shop features a factory and a workshop that has formed more than four generations of artists. Skilled artisans here spend hours working on one piece. Learn about "zelige," the art of making geometric mosaics from hand-chiseled tiles painted with traditional glazes, or try your hand at the pottery wheel. Note that prices here may be slightly higher compared to souks; expect a hard sales pitch at the end of the tour.

  • Moroccan tile and pottery workshop. The geometric pattern is almost no draft! Amazing. Some are large, such as tiled tables, but pottery is perfect for souvenirs. I bought a glass for beer and a few mini-tazine pots for decoration. Moroccan pottery is a pattern not found in Japan, but it meets the table with wonder. However, please look for the beautiful one because the pattern is free hand!

  • Everything we saw was beautiful. Moreover, the guide speaks Italian very well, this is because apart from the various tourists, they have so many relationships with Italy regarding the purchase of the same ovens that come directly from Italy. It shows you the whole process of creating pottery from the bases.

  • Excellent! The tour was very interesting, and the people are especially good with kids. It makes you really appreciate the pottery in a new way. They let the kids make pots on the pottery wheel, and then we came back and picked the pots up the next week after they had been fired and painted. Prices in the store are higher than normal, but the quality control is better, and prices are usually 30%-40% off ever day. :-)
  • very high prices! The average plate costs 400 dirham, in another place its price is 100 dirham, while you can bargain for a lower price.
