I have received information from forum member Kathleen F Johnson about an interesting project she is working on, initiated by Sylvia Lu (Fraser-Lu), to document disappearing Burman textiles. Sylvia wanted input from hands-on weavers on the technical aspects of textile production, actual textile analysis and graphing of selected textiles. Kathleen is a weaver and she has pulled together a group of weavers from the Complex Weavers organization - http://www.complex-weavers.org

Kathleen has been teaching herself how to create web pages aiming to draw up something with lots of pictures and information about the study group. She says that the website is still very much in progress; it changes every day as she learns how to do more and evaluate what she has already done. She has invited forum members to look at it in its fluid state and would welcome comments and suggestions from those with interest and knowledge.

I received an email from Kathleen Johnson overnight:

I've been posting more of my articles and photo shows on SEA textiles on my little web site. Although the format is far from professional, there is a good deal of content there. I still need to write more explanations about the various topics. Right now it is all visual.


I have spent quite a lot of time today going through the site - there is plenty of material and oodles of photos. Particularly good as they have been taken with a keen weaver's eye. Kathleen has also posted some of her published articles including one on sazigyo with Herbert Haar ‘Little Masterpieces: The Art of Burmese Scripture Bindings'. - see Burma section of the site. There is a very good illustrated article on the excellent textile museum in Chiang Mai, Sbun Nga - also to be accessed via the Burma section. I am pleased to see an early article on indigenous weaving from Kathleen's time in Taiwan. She has sections of the site on Burma, Cambodia, Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand.

Be prepared for some waits as you download Kathleen's slide shows but these are worthwhile. She loves her transitions which are occasionally startling - especially when combined with some of the weaving patterns - but at least there is no falling asleep!!

So, lots of material and you will need some chunks of time in which to enjoy it.
