Moroccan interiors


Peeking into closets full of fancy embroidered Moroccan caftans and dresses inside a Riad in the Marrakech medina. Feeling very inspired by those golden poufs.

As part of the Kantara Project, several Oberlin high school classes have taken on curriculum that relates to Morocco and the Untangling Threads show. This Advanced Art High School class led by Danielle Camino has produced beautiful pieces of mixed media artwork that is a response to Anna Beeke’s photography of Moroccan artisans that are part of weaving cooperatives in the Middle Atlas mountains that Kantara works with.
