Preserving Bahraini Handicrafts

As part of its ongoing efforts to preserve Bahrain's handicrafts and traditional industries for future generations, the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), represented by the Handicrafts Directorate, distributed certificates to its ‘Silversmithing – Level 1’ workshop participants. The workshop focused on the basic skills and techniques used in silversmithing, with the aim to enhance the skills of eight participants in order to qualify them to become professional trainers in the field. Hosting such workshops throughout the year comes in line with the BTEA’s keenness to preserve the Kingdom’s crafts and traditional industries for future generations.
