Welcome to Fes, Morocco, home to a 1,000-year-old ceramic art tradition called zellige. The patterns and designs displayed in the pieces have been passed down through generations by master craftsmen and families.
So we're here at a crafts chamber to see the work that actually goes into making it.
Training in zellige starts at a very young age and is not easy. I even took a shot at the pottery wheel and well, let's just say I'm definitely keeping my day job.
