This collective textile workshop with Paola Anziché explores manual dexterity, the spirit of cooperation and the element of discovery. The session provides a knowledge base around weaving without a loom. Requiring no special skills, this is an invitation to rethink and reinvent while exploring aspects of gesture-performance, design, architecture and fashion.
