Guided Tour in Our Studio

The weaving center “Canaan Gallery” is located at the heart of the Old City of Safed in a two hundred fifty years old restored building called “the Fig tree courtyard”. A magnificent Fig tree grows from its center, climbs to the highest veranda in Safed and commands breathtaking views of the Galilee.
The gallery is well known for its weaving workshop, where the art of hand weaving, the most common handcraft, centuries ago in Safed, was brought back to life. The gallery exhibits prayer shawls in a variety of shades, caps, challah covers, and spectacular wall hangings all interwoven in place.

We are happy to offer a variety of groups & family activities:

The backend of the plugin is beautifully designed and fairly intuitive – although there are so many options, it’s almost daunting.
