It was a very popular and much loved technique of working pottery among the Ancient Egyptians who called it thenet – which is derived from the words for dazzling or shinning. The Museum of African Art in Belgrade has the pleasure to host Mohamad Soudi, ceramist from Egypt, who will offer a lecture on the traditional techniques of creating Egyptian thenet, as well as an opportunity for visitors to take part a ceramics and glazing workshop.
