Salam! My name is Brahim. I am very interested in artisanal art. I was working in the rug industry in Marrakesh and when I moved to Sale I got amazed by the craft they are making. My mission is to provide my guests with experiences that reflect and engage our culture in terms of values. Also, I am dedicated to improving the lives of the crafters of the Oulja complex, culturally and financially. If you want to live the Moroccan experience, you are in the right place. Contact me if you need more information, I offer other experiences as well !!!

Where you'll be

The experience will be hosted in the workplace of our crafter. The working place is in a complex of artisans. The complex is very secure due to its location. It is just behind the palace of conferences. This place has been take care of due to the interest of Hassan III the son of the king. This complex looks magical with all the crafts and not crowded with people cause not everyone knew it even locals.

Rated 4.50 out of 5 from 4 reviews.

This was an interesting experience with the basketmaker at his workshop. We both made baskets with his help. The language barrier was somewhat hindering but not impossible. The crafts market was very cool. The host was a friendly young guy.

The experience of making a basket was great and the instructor has many years of experiences n knowledge to share. However, the host has sent his colleague to greet me and was more the half an hour late. I didn’t start the experience till 1hour from meeting time so I would recommend to go Oulja complex directly to meet the host.

It's really amazing to make such a rich and unique experience with Brahim. My husband and I are very interested in handmade crafts. We tried to make a basket by ourselves with the crafter Khalid who is very patient and kind. Khalid speaks French and Brahim speaks very well English. Khalid explained step by step how to make a basket. The skills that Khalid gave us are very useful. At last, we are offered some baskets by Khalid, even our young children had fun in the complex of artisans. BTW, Brahim is a good guide to visit Rabat. His passion is to help local crafters so that more people can know the complex of artisans. Thanks a lot to Brahim and Khalid. Great experience to recommend!
