Jenny Spancake is an avid collector of textiles. She will show and discuss her latest collection of Lao Khrang woven pieces with an emphasis on pha-sins. The Lao Khrang have moved to Thailand from Laos about 200 years ago, and their tradition of weaving continues in villages in central Thailand. These reflect their culture of having woven textiles for utilitarian uses and for clothing.
