Have you ever thought about weaving your own fabric? It is not at all difficult; all it takes is some thread, a few basic materials and knowledge of the weaving technique. In this workshop, inspired by the fabrics used by artists Adrien Vescovi, Güneş Terkol, Paul Maheke and Ilana Halperin in the exhibition Crystal Clear, we first prepare a weaving loom before designing our own colorful fabric to experience weaving as a tool of artistic expression.
