"Crafting Memories: Woodworking in the Artisan's Haven of Shiraz
Welcome to the Artisan’s Haven, I’m Mohammad Soltani, and I invite you to our workshop, a sanctuary nestled in the heart of Shiraz’s historical landscape. Our space has always been a place of respite from the daily routine. The cozy and tranquil environment here is a result of Master Kazem Qarehkhaniyan’s continuous efforts and his unique artistic approach. We are eager to share the sense of well-being we experience in this space with you. We want you to immerse yourself in the experience of wood – to smell, touch, and create with it.
In this experience, we’ll journey to our workshop, the Artisan’s Haven, where we will spend a few hours crafting a small wooden item together, like a coaster, spoon, necklace, or sculpture. Our story begins as you wind through the historic alleyways of Shiraz, leading to the magnificent Saraye Moshir Bazaar. As you meander among the various chambers, shops, and charming teahouses, you’ll find your way to our workshop. The scent of wood and the inviting ambiance are noticeable from afar, drawing you into a world of traditional craftsmanship.
Here, we’ll engage in conversations about different types of wood and the tools and materials used in woodworking. Then, we’ll roll up our sleeves and craft a small product together. You can proudly take your handcrafted item home as a souvenir.
