Weaving Workshop

Sat 15th Jun 2024 & Sat 22nd Jun 2024, 10am


Location: Nottingham
Venue: Nottingham Central Library

An interactive weaving workshop, led by Elaheh Raofi.

Participants will learn ancestral hand-weaving techniques used in her current installation, paying homage to the many women who have and continue to work in the textiles industry in Iran and other Middle Eastern countries. 

Pirouz Installation – The New Generation

Elaheh’s The New Generation installation is a fusion of three distinct materials – a chair, a clock and a Persian carpet – each carrying its own powerful ancestral symbolism. Elaheh will be present at select times, performing her practice of weaving and sculpture.

The installation will be available to view from Monday 10 – Saturday 22 June, 9 – 5pm at the Nottingham Central Library

This event is part of Transition + Transit, curated by Dwayne Church-Simms: a collection of works that explore movement, change, the stories we share and the objects that define our past, present, and future. Transition + Transit is FABRIC’s contribution to Transform, a City Takeover, a collaboration with New Art Exchange and Backlit, Bonington Gallery, Broadway, City Arts, FABRIC, Lakeside Arts, New Perspectives Theatre, Nottingham City of Literature, Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham Playhouse, Primary, Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall and UK New Artists.
