Description

Patterns in silk: The marvellous innovations of Tai weavers

Talk by Chris Buckley

The talk will discuss the ingenious patterning systems that Tai weavers use, and show how their influence has been felt from imperial Chinese silk workshops in the east to the development of computing in the west. It will be illustrated with outstanding Tai textiles from China, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand.

Chris Buckley was educated at Balliol and Wolfson Colleges in Oxford. He has spent the last two decades living in Asia, and now lives in Oxfordshire. He is the co-author of ‘The Roots of Asian Weaving’ (Oxbow Books, 2015) with Eric Boudot.
