Like most of the artisans, Hammadi Sowe learnt from his father, who would take him to the market. His father was the oldest artisan in the market. When he was too old to work, he took over. He is a father of 8 children. The pieces in his workshop also have the touch of his children. They take care of the simpler tasks, like cleaning, sanding, etc., this will bring them closer to this profession, so they can know if they want to continue with this tradition.
