FIRST DRAWING. 
October 2018. 
An imagined shape in space. It was a thing to be made as long as I am high. 




The loom I used to make the carpet is a strange hybrid. The structure is like the Backstrap looms used by amazing Guatemalan women in YouTube videos but it was strung to allow an adapted version of the Pharaonic tapestry technique I learnt from the weavers of Harrania, a village outside Cairo. 

My studio in Fegaala, Cairo. There are more images of the work in progress here.
