My Lecture at Textile Museum

11 Jun

I am sharing the news of my lecture at the Textile Museum on July 18th in Washington DC.

lecture details

Some of you have seen my lectures on the Lao, Cambodian and other looms in the Southeast Asia region via Complex Weavers or thru a weaving guild presentation.

I give full credit to the folks on this side of the ocean that taught me to weave and gave me the opportunity to teach, the weavers on the other side of the ocean in Southeast Asia that proudly showed me how they wove and the anthropologists that patiently assisted along the journey’s way to understand the cultures around the loom.

I am happy to have been given the opportunity to explain how these exquisite cloths are created by traditional and contemporary weavers on very simple looms from the weavers’ point of view. If you cannot make it, please mark your calendar on July 18th and send me calming thoughts! Please pass the word to any whom you may think would be interested in this lecture.

Regards Deb McClintock, Independent Scholar & Weaver

      Thanks Lulu, I am proud to represent hand weavers at the museum and help explain the techniques that the Southeast Asian weavers use to create exquisite textiles.
