Tilleke and Gibbins lecture at Thai Textile Society
14
Jun '11
The Thai Textile Society reminds all textile enthusiasts to attend the June 16 talk given by Dr. Linda S. McIntosh, Consulting Curator, will give a lecture on some types of non-Buddhist or shamanic Tai textiles and their ceremonial functions.

Intricately woven textiles are made specifically for use in different types of rituals, including spirit appeasement and healing rites as well as funerals. The Tai also utilize textiles that have roles in their daily lives for special rites.

A blanket made for a brideâ€s trousseau also serves as a baby carrier and a shroud. The lecture will be illustrated with images from The Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection and from Lindas field research throughout Laos.

Examples from The Collection will also be available for viewing.

Date: June 16, 2011
Time: 10 am- 12 pm
Place: The Tilleke & Gibbins Auditorium,
26th floor, Supalai Grand Tower,
1011 Rama 3 Road,
Bangkok, Thailand.
