tissons ensemble - part II,
an educational project on textiles
~ 2020 . 2021

 As part of tissons ensemble project*, children collaborated with Tissage Moutet, one of the last textile factories in southwestern France. The traditional decor of the region —symmetrical stripes— was reinterpreted by the class and then woven on the factory's Jacquard looms. This was a unique opportunity for them to produce a real industrial textile and to discover this heritage site only a few kilometers from their school.

*project led by Les Ateliers Médicis, the French Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Culture.
