A Talk by Jenny L. Spancake
 

 

On Tuesday, 15th  December 2015 Jenny Spancake will give a talk on the topic of Ikat in Southeast Asia.  She will present a general overview of ikat with a brief history of the technique and how it is used in both insular and mainland Southeast Asia.  The purpose of this talk is to present a general introduction to ikat, one of the most important textile techniques used in Southeast Asia, as well as a framework that can be used by the textile enthusiast to identify the origins of an ikat.

About Jenny Spancake
Jenny has an M.A. in political science from Pennsylvania State University and a postgraduate diploma in Asian Art from the British Museum jointly with Royal Holloway College.  She is an avid collector of the weft ikats of mainland Southeast Asia but like many textile lovers finds it hard to restrict her collecting to just one area.  She has traveled to visit weavers throughout the region but has many more areas on her list to visit.
