    [WORKSHOP] WEAVING WORKSHOP: IKAT TECHNIQUE
    < Back

    Ikat is an ancient resist-dyeing technique named after a Malay root meaning to tie or to bind. It has been practised for centuries in many parts of the world, but reached its most expressive form in the Indonesian archipelago, where it is as widely differentiated as the languages spoken. To coincide with the special exhibition, Fibres of Life: Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago, UMAG is offering weaving workshops for adults and children to explore this mysterious craft. Participants will use a weaving handloom to create simple design and gain insight into the ikat technique by setting up a warp yarn. Ikat is a meticulous art that involves many hours of attention and effort, therefore, it is unlikely that the entire weaving will be completed in the allotted class time. Note: All materials will be provided and all looms must be returned at the end of each workshop.
