Tapestry weaver Christabel Balfour creates a whole rug in the Barbican Shop over five days. Inspired by Yto Barrada’s Barbican exhibition Agadir, Christabel draws from Barrada’s multimedia practice, Moroccan textile traditions and the Barbican’s Brutalist architecture.

The completed rug is displayed in the shop until Sunday 20 May. This live demonstration is part of Make! A Season of Contemporary Craft at the Barbican (Saturday 17 March – Sunday 3 June).
