Prof. Wang Yarong, Institute of History,
Chinese Academy of Social Sciences
Many BIS members have heard Professor Wang Yarong of the Institute of History of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences give a fascinating talk about ancient Chinese embroideries and textiles. Professor Wang is a specialist in the history of textiles, dyes, weaving, folk embroidery, clothes, and fashion in ancient China. For this event, she will speak about Ming and Qing embroideries and present samples for our inspection. She will also bring some of her beautifully worked reproductions of ancient Chinese embroideries and costumes produced by a small “cottage industry” in Shandong Province, as well as some smaller items for us to buy.
