Overview
More
Atelier Assaf is an eco-tourism project that sits quietly in the fertile valley of Al Warhaniyeh, in Shouf Caza, and embodies the harmony between nature, culture and art. Surrounded by 10,000 sq meters of virgin nature, the project was initiated by three artists (the Assaf brothers) and is devoted to showcasing a private collection of cultural and environmental art. The Atelier contains a sculpture park and museum, a rural environmental house, and a small botanical garden. We offer guided tours, that can be customised to our guests’ visits, and that aim to: - Introduce the art and process of sculpting – starting with forming in Clay, casting in Resin and Bronze, then Stone carving; - Acquaint with our rural and environmental house and the process of building it using stone and other natural materials; - Familiarise with wild plants and trees - an initiative that is in collaboration with the AUB Nature Conservation Center. Atelier Assaf is now closed and will re-open April 2018.
