The brass work is a strenuous activity: it requires patience, precision, physical strength, in particular for the brass shaping, but the result is equal to the effort when the snippet brass sheeting looks like a thin lace.

     This workshop brassware is a comprehensive training course that allows you to discover the various techniques used to create utilitarians and decorative objects from brass: the brass shaping (Technique of tatbailit), hammering, engraving and traditional designs (technical of zouak), mixed with arabesques and geometric forms.

You will also observe secondary operations, such as various types of welding performed and polishing.

With the accurate assistant of Mustafa, practical works lead  you up to perform a traditional design on a brass plate and work on a second object  from the technique of  tatbailit and hammering.

Commentary from Marie J., the 21/12/2010:

J'ai participé à un stage de dinanderie au mois de décembre.
J'ai beaucoup aimé cette expérience pour plusieurs raisons : ateliers d'ailleurs à répondu à mon mail de demande de renseignements de suite. Puis arrivée à Marrakech le guide était au rendez-vous à l'heure dite. Un jeune homme parlant très bien un français impecable, agréable, très instruit sur de nombreux sujets : la ville, les rues que nous traversions, la religion. Nous avons eu des conversations enrichissantes qui m'ont mieux fait comprendre le Maroc. Le stage lui-même s'est très bien déroulé : les deux maîtres se sont mis à ma portée. Je suis enseignante, donc je sais reconnaître celui qui sais transmettre. Tous les deux ont fait preuve de patience et d'encouragements. Je me suis tout de suite sentie à l'aise parmi eux. De retour en France, j'ai montré ma réalisation à tout le monde.
Cette expérience aux Ateliers d'ailleurs a été enrichissante et je dirais même émouvante pour moi.
Lors de mon prochain séjour, je n'hésiterai pas à renouveler l'expérience.
