Made in Exile Textile Program (Toronto)
“This year, Made in Exile is offering our very first “Textile Program”, an intergenerational program that brings together Tibetan elders and youth in a space curated for culture-making.
Our 2-month intensive Textile program facilitated by local elders in our community explores the traditional art form of Tibetan carpet weaving as a means to connect with our history, our community and our artistry.
The program entails workshops on loom-making, warping loom and carpet weaving, and will conclude with a gallery showing of the works produced. We require no experience at all and encourage anyone 16-29 years old to apply who has an interest in learning about what our hands are capable of. The program is free and all materials will be provided along with refreshments and tokens. We have limited spots so please apply as soon as possible.”
