Atelier Jameel and Bayt Yakan host a Summer School of courses in traditional crafts and arts at Bayt Yakan's premises in Cairo's historic Al-Darb Al-Ahmar neighbourhood, led by graduates of the Jameel House of Traditional Arts in Cairo.

Eleven Jameel House graduates, under the name Atelier Jameel, will lead a programme offering 15 traditional craft courses and two visits to the Museum of Islamic Art and Muizz Street to residents of Al-Darb Al-Ahmar.

The programme aims to provide a community hub for creative activity and awareness of the area's local architectural and craft heritage, and to create teaching opportunities for Jameel House alumni who can pass on their knowledge and skills to the next generation.
