What and what not to do here
Don’t feel awkward if you are asked to get in shoeless. Whichever workshop you want to visit, you got to take shoes off. Also, photos are a strict no-no. If else you want to snap, you can do so only after the approval of concerned authorities.
Each handcrafted work here is a perfect mix of precision and quality. Most importantly, they are available at an affordable price. So you got good enough reasons to buy them, as a useful item or decorative item, and cherish the memory forever!
In addition, you may also want to adorn your hands with the Arabian designs in henna tattoo. It may probably not last more than three weeks, but perfection of the tattoo artist is something you will always cherish in your mind.
Ask the agency to have this in your list of attractions. For a broad idea, you must know that the centre is located behind the building of General Women’s Union which can be reached over Al Karamah St.
