What does the future hold for 'PlyPalm'? Watch the talk online at your leisure from 23 March on our YouTube and IGTV channels, then join Tanween alumni Lina Ghalib for this live Q&A session where you raise the questions on the unique material created by the designer during her participation in Tanween 2020. Lina developed 'PlyPalm', a hardwood material made of dried palm tree branches, through a process of experimentation. By peeling, cutting, scoring and puncturing the branches, Lina was able to reclaim the seasonally-shed leaves and turn the waste into furniture. Learn more about where the material stands within a historical and contemporary context and how it builds on existing traditions, offering new potentials for arish.
