Our Master Artisans
Turquoise Mountain is proud to include some of Afghanistan's most renowned and highly skilled artisans among its teaching staff. When Turquoise Mountain began its work in 2006, many artisans no longer had students to pass their skills on to. The traditional transmission of knowledge from master to pupil was almost lost, destroyed by thirty years of civil war. Today, these Master Artisans have trained hundreds of artisans, and ensured the survival of these skills into the future.
