UZBEKISTAN CRAFTS — Sustained Through the Generations

A metal craftsman of Bukhara opens his workshop at different times to let tourists see how he does his forging and other work.

Do a quick Google and you see that the Uzbeki Crafts Fair you just missed will soon be followed by another.  There is a great deal of well found pride among Uzbeki craftsmen and craftswomen in the work that they do.  The expertise from prior generations is preserved-- in intricate bead work and similarly detailed suzani, puppet making, paper making, wood and metal working, miniature painting and more.

In Bukhara, the charming puppet making shop/museum is a tourist favorite.

The puppet makers have spotted visitors to their atelier through the years who closely resemble the puppets they had already made.
