Woensdag, 10 februari 2016

Sunday February 1th 2016 was the opening of the 'Carpet Taksubt', in the medina of Sefrou, Morocco.

Together with women and children from the neighbourhood, we made this temporary carpet out of garbage.


At the opening Brahim Daldali, storyteller and partner in this project, told a story, while I handed out manderins to the public.

Children gave the carpet the finishing touch, by placing the orange peels into the carpet.


The project was the end of my month-long Textile Artist in Residency in Sefrou, organized by Culture Vultures Morocco.





Scale model finished.
