Ever wondered what goes into weaving some of the indigenous textiles from the North? There will be a demonstration featuring Ifugao’s sacred textiles on Nov. 4 at the Manlilikha ng Bayan Hall, 3/F, National Museum of Anthropology, Manila.
“I invite everyone to the lecture and weaving demonstrations at the National Museum,” Sen. Loren Legarda said.
“Ifugao weavers will show their unique and intricate weaving processes. This is a good opportunity for people to learn about Ifugao’s sacred textiles.”
On Nov. 4, there will be weaving demonstrations by Virginia Tuguinay, Emilia Alindayo and Junia Guimpayan, all from the Municipality of Kiangan in Ifugao.
These weaving demonstrations as well as the lecture by Marlon Martin of Save the Ifugao Terraces Movement on “Sacred Textiles of the Ifugao: Context and Conservation” held yesterday are part of the Lecture Series on Philippine Traditional Textiles and Indigenous Knowledge initiated by Legarda and the National Museum in 2012.
The series was started to perpetuate weaving and indigenous knowledge.
