Student Conservators for Timor-Leste invite you to join us on November 5th for a film screening and exhibition celebrating the Tais. SCTL will present a screening of ‘Heru Ini Lafu: Weaving Life’, with accompanying photos by Sally Gray and traditional Tais from Iliomar.
Produced by the East Timor Women’s Association (ETWA), the film documents the history of Timor-Leste and the beauty of its culture. It explores how women are reclaiming their culture and reducing poverty through the manufacture of Tais. Sally Gray’s photographs capture the many stages of Tais production, from spinning of the cotton, to manufacture of natural dyes and weaving of the textile on the back-strap loom. We hope to see you there!
