The Houston Design Center’s Dr. Mehdi Abedi and Dr. Lisa Slappey are pleased to announce that they will be teaching “The World of Persian Rugs” at Rice University’s Glasscock School of Continuing Studies beginning March 3rd and March 4th.
They will use their unique Socratic method to bring the wonderfully complex world of Persian rugs to life by introducing participants to their history, design and symbolism. They will help you learn to identify rugs through the concept of family resemblance and to evaluate Persian rugs as art or investments.
The course will include discussions of marketplace etiquette and strategies as well as a field trip to examine rugs. The instructors will host a Persian banquet for participants following the conclusion of the course.
