Barkcloth Basics: Interpreting and Understanding Pacific Barkcloth

The ‘Barkcloth Basics: Interpreting and Understanding Pacific Barkcloth’ workshops which we had hoped to still take place in our partner museums, unfortunately will not take place because of the continued impact of Covid-19.

However, we are extremely pleased to announce that we will be moving our activities online and will create virtual resources and content that will closely replicate our original plans, while at the same time allowing us to reach an even wider audience than anticipated. We are delighted that our amazing tapa makers and artists Reggie Meredith Fitiao and Uilisone Fitiao will also take part in this new online content.

Together, we will be facilitating a select number of live sessions in which we can interact with museum staff, artists, makers, and the general public and talk about tapa in museum collections, as well as people’s own engagement with Pacific tapa.

The live online sessions will take place between Friday 4 September – Tuesday 8 September, with multiple times to choose from. Due to great demand, we have added the session on the 8th to ensure UK-based museum professionals are able to attend, as Monday’s morning session is already sold out.
