SURFACE Show at Chelsea FutureSpace

Rose, silk, detail, Emma Neuberg, 2012.
We’re delighted to announce that silk triptychs created by STG founder, Emma Neuberg, whilst Artist in Residence (AA2A) at Chelsea College of Art & Design, London, are selected for an exciting new exhibition exploring surface, texture, semiotics and meaning taking place February 13th to April 14th 2013 at Chelsea FutureSpace.
The show represents an introduction to the study of surface as texture and skin to interpret and express the liminal space between internal and external worlds.  Other artists in the show include Sanghyun Kim and Kangwook Lee.

Pua Kumba Weaving in Marik Empang!

TSTG members recently enjoyed an evening with Nancy Ngali from Malaysian Borneo, wearing her own pua kumba woven jacket and beaded marik empang at the fantastic current exhibition called 
Endangered Textiles taking place at the Brunei Gallery in London.
                                                                                                                                                                                             Photo: Neuberg
Here’s the process of the warp preparation – hundreds of white silk threads being tied with lengths of plastic rather like tie-dye – in order to prepare the weave to make a jacket or skirt.
                                                                                                                                                 Photo: Neuberg
After all those white threads are dip-dyed in indigo they are set up on a back-strap loom ready for weaving. 
The whole process takes between 3 to 5 months!

For more information on the process, there’s a great introductory article in the wonderful Hand Eye magazine.
