Our next lecture is on Wednesday 24th July 2019 at 1.30pm for 2.00pm. Chris Alexander talks about Nomadic Textiles of Central Asia. Houses made from wool that warm in the depths of winter, carpets that tell stories, woven bands that appease ancestors, embroideries that ward off evil, and kilims that store kitchenware, with everything ready to be packed and carried on yak or camel at a moment’s notice; the little-known nomadic textile cultures of the Kyrgyz, Turkoman and Karakalpak are explored in this lecture.
