Dear folks –
This is to announce publication of a virtual version of a Rug and Textile
Appreciation Morning program, given by Christine Brown, with facilitating assistance by Wendel Swan, at The Textile Museum here in Washington , D.C. on November 21, 2009.
Christine is a student of rugs and textiles, with a special interest in costume. She has traveled widely, both professionally and privately, and has given “rug morning” programs previously, most recently on Uzbek costume (see our archives). She has a personal collection of ethnic jewelry.
Christine’s subject was a venerable one: “The Tree and the Tree of Life Design.” Her program began with a lecture which was followed by an examination of “in-the-fabric” pieces that Christine and members of the audience had brought in. Wendel Swan facilitated this second portion of the program.
The purpose of this email is to announce publication of a virtual version of this program and to provide you with a link for viewing it. You can enjoy this program by accessing it on my blog using the following link:
Either double click on the link itself, or copy and paste it into your
browser and then hit “enter.” That will take you to the “front page” of my
blog “Textiles and Text.” Christine’s “The Tree and the Tree of Life Design” lecture is the first entry in red in the column on the right. The pieces brought in can be seen in the second entry in that same column.
You are receiving this email message because your address is on one of my
lists of “ruggies.” If your inclusion is in error, or if you prefer not to
receive future messages of this sort, please write me at rjhowe@...
and I will remove your name and address from my list.
I do not usually encourage reader responses, but if something especially
interesting or important occurs to you as you read this post, please send
your thoughts and any associated images, to me at my email address above,
together with permission to use the images and/or your indications in part
or whole in any addendum post we may decide to add.
I hope you enjoy this virtual version of Christine’s program on a topic frequently encountered in the textile world and its literature.
