Textile Techniques workshop in Cairo

Last February I held a Textile Techniques workshop in Cairo at DSAF, the Design studio Azza Fahmy.

It was a great experience. Students were very excited about this technique and my work

mostly girls, as usual, with some manicure problems. They had to work first with iron wire which is pretty hard and hurts fingers that are not used to it

but then once understood the technique and its potential, concentration was complete

Thanks to Lilian Mattuschka, my assistant and especially Piero Aricò who made the photos, the course was a success and students all happy at the end and able to take home pieces and new material and a new technique to further experience and use in their jewellery.
