Weaving the Threads of Livelihood
Contemporary textiles produced by the Berber weavers of the Sirwa region of the Atlas mountain ranges in Morocco. Examples of embroidery, sprang (an ancient precursor of knitting), brocading, knotting and other techniques are on display in an exhibition whose centrepiece is a nineteenth-century cloak on loan from the British Museum. Visitors can handle some of the objects on display and watch weaving demonstrations.
