Yusra and Khawla, host the ceramic workshop, and have been with the initiative since it first began in 1993. Both ladies are from the village and work at the Cooperative every day. As single women, the Co-operative has become their second home and its members their extended family. They work with passion and pride and this comes through in all the items they produce and the workshops they host.

Waar je naartoe gaat

The workshop takes place in the Iraq Al Amir Women's Cooperative, located in the village of the same name. The Cooperative is located within charmingly restored Ottoman era houses that are the last of their kind in the village. It is also a 5 minutes walk from the ruins of the Roman castle, Qasr Iraq Al Amir.

The ceramics workshop was very interesting and the women who work there are super lovely. It's more of a tour rather than a workshop, you get to make a few forms with clay in the beginning but unfortunately no coloring or any other steps. You also don't get to take any of the pieces you make because they need to dry before being put in the oven later. I'm not sure what "Take home a gift" in the description refers to but you have the option to buy pieces in the end which we happily did.

The ladies at this Co-Operative are excellent. I enjoyed two visits - one to the paper making workshop and the other to the ceramics workshop. The centre is about 20km outside Amman in the village of Iraq Al Amir where I was greeted warmly by the ladies. During both very informative and interactive workshops I was served local tea and was given the opportunity to participate in the crafts. I was also given gifts to take away as well as having the chance to buy some of the products made at the centre. A very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.

We had a good time doing some small ceramics. Unfortunately communication was limited, because our Arabic skills are very basic. We had delicious Maqlouba for lunch!

Iraq al-Amir is a cute little village just outside Amman. It can easily be reached by taxi/uber or bus (make sure you book your return trip, too, as Uber is not available in the village and there are hardly any taxis). The women’s coop offers different programs and includes a small shop where you can buy handmade soap, ceramics, and paper. The coop is located in walking distance from the caves, which are also nice to visit. The ceramics workshop took approx 1.5 hours and covered two kinds of pottery, which I liked a lot. If you enjoy the calming effect pottery can have on you, this will definitely be a good experience for you :) the women were lovely and cooked a delicious lunch for us (which was rather expensive). We would have loved to learn more about the coop, about the women’s everyday live and the village. However, none of them spoke English and our Arabic skills are rather limited, so communication was very difficult . They provided us with some info material, though. All in all a nice activity when you have a half-day to spend!
