The Silk Innovation Center (SIC) At Maha Sarakham University Will Host “The Workshop For Weaving Silk Textiles 2008” will be held on August 28 - 29, 2008 13.05.2008 02:37
The workshop has two goals, to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Sirikit as “The Mother of Thai Silk” and to support the development of technology and the traditions of silk weaving throughout Southeast Asia and neighboring countries.
The workshop will include presentations of papers on silk weaving, a fashion show using Thai textiles, and an exhibition of Thai textiles.
The workshop organizers have issued a call for papers. The submission deadline is July 30. Accommodations will be available at the Takasila Hotel in Maha Sarakham.
The Silk Innovation Center, established in July 2000, is Thailand’s newest sericulture research and development facility.
In addition to its active research schedule, the SIC maintains a strong commitment to interaction with the local silk industry.
Local weavers and the silk community in general are encouraged to become beneficiaries of the center’s practical application and research programs.
To broaden its horizons in order to bring the latest knowledge and technology to local silk communities, the SIC has developed a working relationship and academic agreement with The Kyoto Institute of Technology in Japan.
