Learn about artistic textile techniques

2 hours Max 6 people50 euros per person

Ebullient and passionate Maria Grigoriou will take you through her workshop explaining and showing the different techniques that come into play in her work: textile natural dyeing with local Greek plants, textile weaving techniques, ancient and modern, paper dyeing and folding, and finally wire hammering and sculpting. Each technique is often centuries-old, but has been refined and elevated with Maria’s imaginative know-how. Maria will also show you that techniques are useless if there is no inspiration and will describe her intellectual and emotional processes that transform matter into artistic forms.
