Art of Damascening with Familly ESSAIDI from MEKNES



The maalem Hicham ESSAIDI was chosen by the Ministry of Moroccan Crafts to represent the trade DAMASCENING under the national project MALEEM. This project concerns  the preservation of traditional skills that are disappearing. It is based on an online video where  trades, endangered, are described through instructional videos and additional multimedia documents.

Hicham ESSAIDI agreed to be filmed throughout the process of making a damascened  object  in order  to show specific business actions and the critical points of his technique.
