Guild meeting and talk: A Forgotten Country – Textiles of Laos
June 27 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Needlework designer and geography teacher Jennifer Hughes lived in south east Asia for a
number of years and collected many textiles from across the region. The textiles of the landlocked country of Laos are a wonderful treasure. Colourful costumes, household and temple textiles are largely hand-woven.
Decorated with fascinating motifs, such as mythical animals and geometric patterns, they reflect the traditional nature of life. The talk is illustrated with many intriguing textiles.
