“Abla” criticizes a worker who reveals the secrets of her school.. Evelyn Bureh is “alive” in “Egyptian Tunisia” (exclusive)

In recognition of her immortal role, the people of the Egyptian village of Tunis celebrated the birth anniversary of the Swiss artist Evelyn Burret, who turned their village into a global shrine.

The name of Evelyn Bourret was given to the largest street in the village of Tunis in Fayoum Governorate, in central Egypt, as a kind of appreciation for her efforts to develop the village and place it on the map of the global pottery industry.

Immediately after completing the study of applied arts in Switzerland, “Bureh” visited the village of Tunisia, based on the nomination of her friends, and spent her entire life there until her death in mid-2021, and established a pottery school in it.

The village also witnessed the organization of an exhibition of crafts and Christmas products, which is an annual exhibition organized by the Fayoum Art Center, in addition to exhibitions of pottery products created by graduates of the Fayoum Pottery School.

The plastic artist explained that “Pureh” loved Egypt in general, and in the heart of it is the village of Tunisia, and believed in the ability of the Egyptian child to excel, and for this she established the Fayoum Pottery School, targeting the children of the village in the first place.

Abla, a resident of the village of Tunis, stressed that the conditions of the village were deplorable before the arrival of Bureh, and its houses were without water or electricity, praising its enormous role in improving the conditions of the village and improving the lives of its people.

He pointed out that he established the Fayoum Arts Center in the village of Tunis to work in parallel with the pottery school to transfer other arts to its children, and to improve their artistic taste, especially after their town turned into a cultural center.
