Inspired by Enrico David’s Fault Work exhibition currently showing at SAF Art Spaces, this workshop invites participants to go on an excursion around #SAFneighbourhood to find and collect unwanted fabrics and materials from textile shops. After gathering a wide variety of patterns and designs, participants will reflect on the mix of traditional and digital methods used to make the fabrics and understand the significance of the fabrics as cultural symbols, works of art and items of trade. Participants will then learn how these scraps can be upcycled and woven into tapestries similar to those in David’s work.
This workshop is presented in collaboration with Khalid Mezaina.
All events are free and open to the public.
