The annual Tunis Pottery Festival

Tunis is located in the south-western part of Fayoum on Lake Qarun. The village is mostly populated by farmers that grow olives, onions, corn and animal feed. But Tunis is also famous as an artist’s residence. The village is presently home to many pottery workshops and Evelyne’s Pottery School that produce and sell artistic pottery.

The colorful glazed Tunis pottery is inspired by Islamic art motifs. Tunis pottery is not mass-produced: Every single piece originates from the imagination and creativity of its producer. 

Some of the potters have participated in local and international pottery exhibitions and fairs. Their products are exhibited in local and international museums and are sold in Fayoum, Cairo and abroad. Yet, tours through Tunis offer much more. They take visitors to off the beaten tourism tracks through wonderful green areas with lush fruit gardens and fields, and provide them with a rare insight to rural traditions and life.


 The annual Tunis Pottery Festival

The annual “Tunis Pottery Festival” scheduled for the 3rd to 6th of December is a cultural highlight: Exhibits of ceramics, handicrafts and pottery works to bird watching, presentations of documentaries and recorded films as well as theatre and Bedouin group performances reflect the richness of Fayoum’s cultural heritage.
