Traditional woodturners in Marrakech still work with hand powered lathes, controlling their tools with their feet. This young woodturner, Hassan, uses just one tool (a skew chisel) to produce a lucky charm for a waiting client. The woodturners use the same bow lathes to produce chess pieces and brochette skewer handles. Hassan's workshop is near to the restaurant Le Jardin, 5 minutes walk from Dar Zaman.
