Textile Traditions of Vietnam's North.
2014
Tutor- Fiona Wright


Visiting the North of Vietnam we will have an opportunity to savour a culture rich in textile
traditions.
That is just the beginning… the first word that springs to mind when thinking of this region is
peaceful and the second is friendly…the food is an art in itself, the scenery so inspiring…and
the textiles!
Once we leave Hanoi with its wonderful silk street [perfect to get something sensational tailored
for yourself], and threads street and laquer street we head out into the countryside where
many cottage industries of embroidery, weaving and  indigo dyeing abound.

People are friendly and happy for us to pop in and see what is going on, others are kindly
going to teach us. We will have the opportunity to sit around with some of the local ladies, chat
and stitch. A chance for us to learn their approach to reverse appliqué, cross stitch in luscious
thick silks, dunking the odd piece of cloth into indigo until it becomes a rich blue/black. A time
to experience a different pace of life, a place where handwork helps support a family and is an
integral part of the culture- this Vietnam’s North.



Future tours will follow a similar luscious itinerary.
