In this experimental workshop students will learn methods for building skeletal structures with rigid and semi-rigid materials such as reed, rattan, bamboo, wood, and wire. The class will also explore the use of found materials and recycled frameworks. Methods will include formal and chaotic plaiting, wire and netting construction, and lashing techniques.

Mo Kelman’s work sits at the juncture of architecture and engineering: in a place where sculpture and textiles meet. Lashing together frameworks with wire and fibre, Mo creates skeletons that she covers with skins of handmade paper, shibori patterned cloth, or mesh.
