I recently attended a two day workshop at the Asian Art Museum in Universiti Malaya, Malaysia. The workshop was on traditional Malay embroidery or "sulaman". I learnt a great deal from the workshop, we were especially fortunate because we were given hands on training by an expert. Click this link to view images of the exhibition and workshop in progress.

If the link doesn't work, please email me at adline76@yahoo.co.uk. I will be happy to send you an e-mail invitation to view the online album.

Very many thanks for sharing the workshop with us. I was able to see the slide show and your photos gave a very good idea of how to do the technique. It certainly could be tedious and backbreaking, especially for the less experienced. As with so many things, experience can create a rythm and aparent ease. You can admire it but it takes years of practice to acquire. However, I think that your photos from the workshop would allow someone to 'have a go' themselves.

It is good to understand the 'how' of a technique to so much better appreciate the textiles that we see and I am sure that collectors and enthusiasts will appreciate this opportunity to learn.

Very many thanks for keeping the forum in mind and sharing with us.

Dear Pamela,

I'm glad that the Kodak Gallery link I posted had worked & that you got to see the slideshow. I tried to document the process as best I could so that I could share it with friends ...

I learnt quite a bit about the types of Malay embroidery at the workshop :)
I was so engrossed in the workshop that I forgot to drink enough water. By the end of two days, I was dehydrated and dizzy... I started talking nonsense & bumped into a blind man on my way home! On the positive side ...
We got to take home our tools and materials :)
