If you are travelling to Egypt a visit to the school can be arranged to fit in with excursions to the nearby pyramid sites of Giza and Saqqara.

The Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre is near the village of Harrania on the Saqqara road between Giza and Saqqara. From Cairo take the main road to Giza, turning off onto the Saqqara road shortly before reaching Giza. Four kilometres down the Saqqara road you will see the Harrania village sign and then a sign for the Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre. Turn right, cross the canal and turn right again. Go to the second gate in the mud wall, on which you will see another Wissa Wassef School sign. Press bell for entry.

Opening Times: Daily from 10am-5pm.

The weavers work from 9am to noon and from 2pm to 5pm except Thursday afternoon and Fridays. Allow about an hour for the visit and if you want to be sure that the weavers are working contact the Art Centre.

A round trip by taxi from a central Cairo hotel should cost around 80 - 100 Egyptian pounds including a one hour wait. Alternatively the return journey can be made by public minibus.
