I am listing some of the handicraft pieces from other countries that are sold in Muscat festival.
The following pieces are made with metallic thread ,similar to the ones we use for embroidery.
First the pattern to be worked is drawn on black felt cloth,
Then the artist, with the help of delicate forseps[looks like tweezers]places the thread in the shape he wants, the laying, the twisting are made with the help of forceps and scissors,he must have glued the surface he was working ,.before he started laying the thread.
These are only my deductions because of two reasons-
the artist was quiet busy with his work,
and we did not speak the same language. Communicating could have interfered with his work.
The name of the artist’s country is not very clear to me,maybe because it was written in Arabic.
