Members Event | Art-Making Activity for Families “Woven Wonders”

June 10, 2023

MFAH members at the Family Level and above are invited to reserve tickets for an art-making activity led by a teaching artist. This edition is inspired by the exhibition Woven Wonders: Indian Textiles from the Parpia Collection. Learn the bandhani textile-dyeing process, and come away with a naturally dyed bandana of your own to take home.

Assembled to reflect India’s myriad regional traditions, the Parpia Collection showcases the extraordinary aesthetic and technical diversity of Indian textiles. Ranging from folk textiles to sophisticated court textiles, the objects span the 14th century to the early 20th century. The collection illustrates the preeminence of textile arts from India throughout history with examples of hand-painted and hand-block-printed cotton, embroidery, ikat, tie-dye, brocade, and tapestry.
