Event Details

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.

伊卡為染織結合的一種古老技術,命名於馬來詞彙對紮線或束綁的稱呼。這項技術於各國流傳了幾個世紀,而印度尼西亞群島所出產之物更被視爲登峰造極之作,款色之廣猶如其語言差異之多。為了配合特別展覽《生如錦繡:印尼群島的伊卡絣織》,香港大學美術博物館將舉辦伊卡梭織體驗工作坊,讓參加者探索這門神秘工藝。參加者將使用手織機編織簡單圖案,並通過有條不紊的方式設置經紗,模仿伊卡技術。伊卡梭織是一種極爲細緻的藝術,需要無比精神及努力。因此,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。
