Asia Society Texas Center Creation Station: Storytelling and Textiles
Storytelling traditions and the uses of textiles are varied throughout Asia. The focus for the first Creation Station of 2015 will be The Crane Wife, known as Tsuru no Ongaeshi in Japanese, which recounts how the life of a broken-hearted man is transformed when he rescues an injured crane. Guests will create wing designs from yarn, bookmarks from cardboard looms and felt pouches. The event will also exhibit selected Asian textiles for visitors to learn about the myriad of styles across the continent.
