DISCOVER THE TREASURES OF AL AALI POTTERY
We invite your delegates to visit Bahrain’s last remaining traditional potteries in Aali. There will be an opportunity for delegates to make their own pottery pieces and to purchase original works of art direct from the master potters themselves. Fragments of clay pieces hundreds of years old, which have been found all over Bahrain confirm that pottery was once a widespread industry on the island. Today, pottery is made only in the village of Aali where traditional methods are still used. Delegates can watch as flowerpots, vases, incense bowls, water jugs, and plates are moulded, dried in the sun and then heated in kilns. There are only a few such potteries in Aali, which have
survived some 5,000 years after this ancient industry first flourished on the island.
