In Hamza Fasiki's eyes, everyone is an artisan. In about four hours, he'll turn you into a bookbinder, brass etcher or leather embosser; in two hours, you'll learn the basics of traditional geometric patterns. Hamza learned the skills from his own father, a master craftsperson; in these classes you are able to use wonderful old traditional tools.

Hamza is also a musician: he gives enlightening and entertaining talks on Andalusian music, demonstrating on his oud. A workshop for a group of 15 people costs Dh70 per person.
