Isfahan (IMNA) – "Today, as we care about the preservation of the historical heritage of our city, we should also have the same concern about the handicrafts, so as not to be forgotten over time," Alireza Nasr Isfahani said. Emphasizing that the handicraft art in different majors should be transferred to the young generation, he said, "In this regard, the creativity and new technologies management center of the municipality along with the cooperation of the museum for contemporary arts have established the handicraft school, so that children will be trained with the help of masters of different art majors."

He hoped that we will arrive to witness a huge transformation in valuable art heritages of Isfahan by establishing the handicraft school that is active in four majors of hand engraving (Ghalam Zani), enameled works (Minakari), seven-color tiles, and pottery then we will be able to transfer these tangible art to the next generations. "It is planned that the handicraft school will be active once or twice a week during the academic year. We try to provide the context to add more centers throughout the city and take more advantage of experienced masters," he added. "Handicrafts are eccentrically tied to Isfahan's culture, so the necessary context should be provided for  new generations to be more familiar with this valuable heritage," Nasr Isfahani continued.
