The Glass Maker

As part of preserving heritage, we need to give attention to crafts and craftspeople. Their skills should not die with them, but should be developed to create new forms of crafts. A complete section of Heritage Week at Birzeit was dedicated to crafts including live shows by glass makers, pottery makers, and other craftspeople. A good example is the traditional glass-blower, here are a few photos I took recently:
