The olive wood craftsmen began rehearsing their art from the begin of the fourth century. This aptitude was educated for the most part by the priests who went to that territory. The priests showed them how to cut and shape the olive wood with the goal that they can make wonderful statues. 

Bigger craftsmen had just a single real issue, how to convey purchasers into Bethlehem to see their work. On account of the littler craftsmen, they confronted a few barriers (play on words planned). They confronted issues in motivating devices to carry out their activity. Since they were not too settled like a couple of others, they couldn’t get enough purchasers the same number of purchased the flawless olive wood endowments from the set up specialists. In this way, these littler specialists needed to do with what little they have.

A considerable lot of the littler craftsmen work from their own storm cellars or little alcoves. They don’t have the assets to have a different office or workshop. A significant number of the houses in Bethlehem have a storm cellar. In this way, the craftsmen make utilization of these cellars to deal with the beautiful items. Indeed, even a little space some place in their homes is all that anyone could need for them to work. For instance, one craftsman had a little workshop measuring just around 3 meters by 3 meters (just shy of 30 square feet). You can scarcely call this a workshop he managed with whatever space that was accessible to him. His blessing was making little crosses. He used to get olive wood from the market. Once getting the olive wood transported to his ‘workshop’, he used to cut them until the point that they went to the state of a cross. Once the shape has been accomplished, he used to smooth them until the point when the edges are great. With a little laquer and a couple of additionally completing touches, the blessing would be prepared. At that point, he used to take it to the market to check whether he could get any purchasers for his items. Since he was a littler craftsman, he would not draw in numerous purchasers quickly.

Another craftsman had so little space for a workshop that one expected to dodge keeping in mind the end goal to move inside it. There was not space for a normal grown-up to walk upright inside his cellar workshop. In any case, a little space was every one of that was required for him to make his blessings. He used to sit in his little wooden work area and cut different Mother of Perl pendants, hoops and proposes.

Indeed, even the littlest specialists can manage with a little inventiveness.
