March 12, 2021




Events Description


Join artist Meera Sethi in a free live workshop and show & tell, Material Histories, that explores the cultural and socio-political histories of South Asian textiles and garments. Textile contributors will bring a South Asian garment or textile piece that they own to contribute to the discussion and share a story about what it means to them. From these stories, Meera will lead a discussion on South Asian heritage textile crafts and garment design, production, and how they relate to regional cultures, identities, and political histories.

You can participate in 2 different ways: either as a Textile Contributor or an Audience Participant.


  • Paper and pen or pencil for jotting down notes of interest.
  • A cup of tea or other beverage to enjoy throughout the gathering.



Textile Contributors can register by emailing with an image of your South Asian textile or garment piece so that the artist can conduct some research on it. We respectfully ask that all registered Textile Contributors are committed to attending the workshop, out of consideration for the artist’s time and labour to conduct research on your textile piece.

Audience participants can watch, listen, learn and ask questions during the open Q&A session. To register as an audience participant, please proceed to Registration Button below.
