Paper Weaving Designs

Pera Kids
Ages 7-12

  • November 18, 2020 / 13:00

Are we able to recognize the texture of objects without touching them? Can we create designs that give different senses through sight or touch? We weave paper with inspiration from the artist Noor Ali Chagani’s The Hanging Rug made of handmade miniature bricks. We use a weaving technique to create interwoven 3D designs out of colored railroad boards.
