Maral Mamaghani kick started her DYCP award from Arts Council England with a visit to Kidderminster’s Museum of Carpets just before lockdown. Maral met volunteers and they shared experiences of using a loom, Maral’s family owned a loom in Iran. and Maral wove fabric and then made a jacket from the woven fabric. Maral was also shown how to card and spin wool, which could be a process she adapts to spin human hair into thread. Maral will return to the museum to explore weaving complex and difficult materials into fabric.
