Event Details

Weaving is one of the methods of textile production that consists of two distinct sets of yarn – the warp and the weft – which interlock to form a single piece of fabric or cloth. To coincide with our current exhibition, "Imagining Qianlong: Louis XV’s Chinese Emperor Tapestries and Battle Scene Prints at the Imperial Court in Beijing", UMAG is offering weaving workshops for adults and children to explore this ancient craft. Participants will have the opportunity to use a traditional weaving handloom to create their own design, with a variety of different yarns to choose from. The workshop is designed to teach basic weaving techniques and to allow participants to explore a variety of materials and colours as part of the weaving process; 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.

梭織為一種編織工藝,利用經紗與緯紗,以直角方式互相交織而成。紗線依靠抱合處間的摩擦力,而得以保持在適當的位置上製作成布匹。為配合《乾隆意象:路易十五的中國皇帝掛毯與北京宮廷戰圖銅版畫》展覽,香港大學美術博物館將舉辦梭織體驗工作坊,讓成人和小孩都能夠探索這門古藝。參加者將運用傳統手織紗和紗線製作簡單圖案。此工作坊旨在教授基本的梭織技巧,同時讓參加者明白探索各種材料和顏色亦是梭織過程中不可或缺的部分。由於製作需時,作品極有可能無法在上課時間完成,敬請留意!
注:本課程將包括所需材料,但手織機必須在工作坊完結後歸還。
