CARPET WEAVING AND DESIGNING
The art of carpet making is one of the oldest and most celebrated artistic traditions to have survived to the modern day. Carpets hold an particularly distinguished place in the Middle East where they are held as an item of prestige in mosques, palaces, and houses. The historical methods of carpet-weaving are thus highly valued as skills which incorporate aesthetic beauty with traditional craftsmanship.
Shorsh Saleh is an experienced carpet maker and designer. His work has been sold both nationally and internationally to a number of clients including HRH Prince Charles. Saleh teaches carpet weaving at the Prince's School of Traditional Arts and the Museum of Islamic Art, Doha. He also teaches private classes from his studio in London.
