I just got back from a short holiday in Marrakech and I was prepared for some beautiful patterned tiles but I wasn’t expecting all the amazing weaving! I wanted to buy them all.
They have so many techniques.
It gets very cold so warm blankets are essential.
The one I bought (not pictured) is made from sheep wool. I met the artist but she didn’t speak English and I really wanted to communicate to her that I really loved her work and respected her as an amateur fellow weaver! should have brought pics of me working at my loom…
This place is completely bonkers and fun and inspiring and beautiful and colourful. If you ever go to Rome its the best day trip out of town you could do.
I’ve wanted to go since i find out about it 8 years ago. its small and i tried not to get too excited in case i was disappointed but i wasnt at all!
I went to the Lambeth Country Show 2014 and saw this great rag weaving on an old clothes horse.
Karina was also running some smaller rag weaving workshops.
I am an artist, illustrator, weaver and workshop facilitator currently living and working in London, UK.
