In collaboration with Thaqafat Association, the Center for Cross Cultural Learning offers an annual Traditional Moroccan Summer Workshop (TMSW). TMSW is a two-week series of workshops in Moroccan culture and handicrafts for children 6 to 12 years of age.
Sample workshop topics include sessions on traditional oral folktales and storytelling techniques, M’sid (traditional Quranic school), introductory Tamazight language sessions, traditional Moroccan cooking, sewing and embroidery, lessons on regional costumes, songs and customs, traditional calligraphy (writing on a wooden board), and carpet-making. In addition to the workshops, the program includes two excursions within Rabat to give the children the opportunity to observe but also be part of the complex and fascinating life in the old city of Rabat.
All TMSW workshops are led by associates of Thaqafat Association and the CCCL who are trained in cross-cultural education.
