Talk: A study of Indonesian stitch resist dyeing
Tuesday 9 October
Researcher and designer Bintan Titisari presents a fascinating talk on Indonesian stitch resist dyeing
Stitch resist dyeing is a long established practice in Indonesia, from the Sasirangan cloth produced in South Kalimantan province and Pelangi cloth in South Sumatra province, to the Jumputan cloth in the special region of Yogyakarta province.
Titisari will discuss her research into the technologies and organisational approaches underpinning traditional stitch resist production, offering new perspectives on the characteristics of stitch resist dyeing in Indonesia. She will share her findings and her work towards cultural sustainability, including new techniques and systems that can sustain, strengthen and revitalise the craft.

The talk will be followed by a late opening of Resists: exploring resist-dyed textiles across cultures at ULITA – an Archive of International Textiles7 from 5pm–7pm. Refreshments served.
