Outside is a workshop held in Tighmert an oasis in the South of Morocco, with Qafila Tighmert a women cooperative working The local artisanat.The purpose of this atelier is to help women to find their own motifs starting for a picking a session.
After the picking, comes the selection part.
Composition, drawing, research.
Each woman is looking to create her own motif from The oasis’s vegetation
The women were so glad to have new patterns to put in their upcoming pieces.
At The end of The workshop we had : LEHBIBA, LAZIZA, HALIMA, IZZA, ZAINA, JAMILA all these names are both the names of The new motifs and the women.
Comes the artistic part where I developped the motifs into an installation in order to give these brave women another horizon to see their own patterns.
The motifs are created by The vegatation’elements that we work with during The first part of The workshop.
After one year, the second edition of Caravane de Tighmert has be confirmed and the installation has aged and it was with great pleasure to be part of this new edition for new adventure.
