Bharti Parmar is an incredible Birmingham artists who we are working with toward an exhibition at Aedas Presents next year. http://www.bhartiparmar.com/ Keep an eye on our blog for details.
We popped by her studio for an update and was amazed by what we saw. For part of the exhibition Bharti is making a 6m squared rug - out of human hair!
Some gorgeous European hair samples - these were pieces in their own right, soft and the most exquisite variation of colours from blondes through to reds.
Bharti showed us how to make a rug out of hair - this is a very specialised technique used in wig making
