The zellige is a gray terra cotta tile, stemmed from Fes, covered with enamel in one side to give it colour. The craftsman cuts these tiles into small pieces of various shapes which afterward going to assemble to create compositions often very complex.


This first 5 hour training course is more diversified because you can practice the mosaic artcraft, but also the zellige scratched which consist in removing the enamel in some places of a tile to bring up a drawing.

The workshop is a cooperative which employs a dozen master craftsmen (maalems) or workmen; you thus have ample opportunity to observe professionals and ask questions.

During practical activities you make the cutting of small parts that you can assemble later. You work also scratching a tile zellige to make a drawing of your choice.
