Understanding Khmer Hol
Saturday, March 20, 2021 at 10:30 am
By sharing my experience visiting and studying in Cambodia, participants will gain an understanding of Khmer Hol by viewing work being done in Cambodia by Khmer weavers.
You will also come to understand the history of Khmer weaving viewing photos of Angkor Wat and other sites with carved statues of women in traditional patterned skirts. Modern brides still wear these patterned silk skirts. Photos of these brides standing in ancient Khmer ruins will amaze you.
The technique used to tie, dye and weave these patterns will be explained and demonstrated through photos of my work and Cambodia weavers.
