ApprenTissage

ApprenTissage is a project in progress of a learning center for design and weaving.

It started with Ousmane Diallo who had a dream to become a Flying8-weaver. The Flying8-loom was developed by the German weaver Andreas Mšller, who has been teaching the construction and mechanics of the Flying8 concept worldwide. Stini Arn has learned with him for her musical weaving project ÇWebstall PigniaČ in 2010. As intermediary she started constructing Flying8-looms together with Ousmane in Daoudabougou, Bamako in 2016.

The ApprenTissage team consists of Ousmane Diallo, Stini Arn with the help of Andreas Mšller Weberei Hamburg
