Men at Work - The Tentmakers of Cairo Exhibition
Date: 9th May, 2017
Unique hand-stitched applique wall art from the Street of Tentmakers, Cairo
Tuesday 9th to Tuesday 30 May 2017
Although the demand for the opulent tented palaces of past Sultans has long gone, the skills needed to decorate these tents live on and are now being used by Egyptian craftsmen to create stunning works of textile art, a selection of which go on show at Salisbury’s Fisherton Mill this spring.
Ranging in size from an eye-catching 2-metre-tall wall hanging to a series of smaller panels, these textiles are worked with dramatic designs in applied blocks of cotton. Many depict the geometric patterns often associated with Islamic art, but the use of brilliant new colours and ever more complex designs have given them a decidedly contemporary twist. Read more
