As part of its ongoing efforts to preserve Bahrain's handicrafts and traditional industries for future generations, the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), represented by the Handicrafts Directorate, distributed certificates to its leather crafting workshop participants on the 1st of April 2018.

The workshop, conducted by the trainer, Mr. Adel Jassim, was held between the 11th and 29th of March 2018 and focused on the basic skills and techniques of leather crafting with the aim to enhance the skills of 11 participants to qualify them to become professional trainers in the field.

 “We are pleased to announce the success of the leather crafting workshop, which comes as part of our efforts to develop the skills of the craftsmen. We look forward to hosting several workshops in the coming future,” said the Director of Handicrafts Directorate, Shaikha Wafa Saif Al Khalifa.

Hosting such workshops throughout the year comes in line with the BTEA’s keenness to preserve the Kingdom’s crafts and traditional industries for future generations.
