Walied Khoury is a resident of the beautiful Christian village Fassuta. Fassuta is one of two villages in the Western Galilee with only Christian residents.
Walied developed an interest in iron at the age of 40, he had never dealt with manual labor before that.
You can visit Walied at his studio, hear his story, see a variety of iron works and furniture he makes and also watch a demonstration of his blacksmith skills.
If you book in advance, Walied can take you on a short tour of the village – to the ancient church that was recently renovated.
Walied was asked to reconstruct the church’s main door and pillars. The ancient church is very close to the new church, also worth a visit.
