In the first of our series of ‘How to’ workshops focusing on traditional crafts, tapestry weaver Christabel Balfour invites us in her South London studio for a weaving demonstration.
I’m just really invested in how eloquent really simple shapes can be – you don’t have to do do a lot, to say a lot
Part of ‘Make! A Season of Contemporary Craft’, in partnership with Crafts magazine: barbican.org.uk/make
Stop by the Barbican Shop from 9–13 May to witness the process first hand in a Weaving Demo as Christabel will be weaving a rug on site, inspired by the Yto Barrada’s exhibition, Agadir, and the architecture of the Barbican itself.
Learn the techniques of hand-weaving in Christabel Balfour’s Weaving Workshops (13–27 May)
