Jali woodworking workshop with Lazo Studios


Jul 30, 2022 - Jul 30, 2022


Migration Museum,
Migration Museum, Lewisham Shopping Centre,
London, SE13 7HB


Saturday 30 July 2022
£35 – book via Eventbrite

Join Lazo Studios for a woodworking workshop in our Makerspace and learn how to design and construct traditional Jali lattice work.

Incorporated into the traditional architecture of cultures along the old silk route, Jali lattice work often serves both a functional and decorative purpose.

In this workshop, you will learn the basic steps of how one small unit of a Jali panel is designed and constructed using simple hand tools. You will get to make and take home a small Jali trivet.

The duo behind Lazo Studios complement each other in both their training and approach. Naseer Yasna is an artisan trained in the traditional woodwork of Central Asia, while Hedieh Wojgani is a trained architect and artist with a modern appreciation of craft and design. Their work is rooted in the rich heritage of cultures along the Ancient Silk Route and embodies a fusion between the Eastern aesthetic and the Western practicality.

This is a three-hour workshop led by Hedieh and Naseer, with a 15-minute break in the middle. All tools and materials will be provided.
