Illustrated talk with Jill Salmons The Costumes and Culture of South West China

Stroud

15 December 2018

Time: 2.30 pm Doors will open at 2.00 pm

Jill is a traveller and collector of rare ethnic textiles and costumes.
Many ethnic minority groups live in the South West regions of China, often living in remote villages far from the explosion of modern Chinese city life. Here in the beautiful mountainous region each village continues to wear distinctive costumes, all hand woven, batiked and embroidered by the women of the area.

This talk will illustrate the lifestyle of these people and show the various techniques used in order to produce the spectacular, colourful costumes. Jill will bring a large collection of costumes and textiles from the region to study and enjoy. This will include burnished indigo and embroidered costumes.


Tea and cake served
