Egyptian Craftsmanship Festival to be held in October

The second session of the Egyptian Craftsmanship Festival will be held October 11-13 under the slogan "Develop the Origin".
The festival is organized by the Francophone Activities Center at the Library of Alexandria and Senegal will be this year's guest of honor.
The festival aims to focus on the positive role played by traditional craftsmanship in community development. The organizers of the festival said choosing Senegal as guest of honor supports cultural ties between the two countries.
The festival will hold workshops for Senegalese and Egyptian craftsmen who manufacture buffalo horn products, ebony products, handmade carpets, pottery, silver jewelry and other products.
The festival, which will promote popular Egyptian food and art, will also include workshops on handmade products for Francophone school students in Alexandria. 
The festival is sponsored by the Tourism Ministry, the French Chamber of Commerce in Egypt and the Senegalese Craftsmen Union.
