Crocheting the Kadazandusun ‘Siling’

June 8 @ 8:00 AM - June 9 @ 5:00 PM

Crochet Kadazandusun 'Siling'

Learn the technique of crocheting the Kadazandusun ‘Siling’.

The golden lace which were once handmade by the Kadazandusun women were used mainly to decorate the ceremonial clothing for both men and women..

However, with the introduction of the industrial made lace from China, the handmade lace is no longer produce and use as the crocheting process is quite time consuming.

As time flies, the skills and knowledge has not been passed down to the next generation thus this tradition is facing extinction.

We hope with this 2-days workshop, we could train new and young crocheter who would might be interested to continue the legacy of the Kadazandusun.

Fees: RM450/pax inclusive of tools, materials, lunch and tea-breaks.
