I will be in China with my husband, for his work, from August 30 to September 11 this year. We will be in Changchun, Xi'an, Wuhan and Beijing, in that order. I have done some searching and have asked one of the weaving email lists and the Travelry group in Ravelry. I now believe that there is very little handweaving currently in China except for a few indigenous groups which are on other regions of the nation. It is always nice to meet weavers in another country! But I also love to see handwoven textiles in exhibits, museums and shops. China has a long history of excellent weaving for thousands of years. Have you seen any weaving exhibits or looms in these 4 cities? Do you know any shops with handwoven textiles?
Any exhibits with interesting textiles of any sort where I am going?
Thanks in advance!
