THE TEXTILE SOCIETY OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES:
TSA Study Tour to South India
October 23-November 6, 2011
Registration deadline July 29, 2011
The Textile Society of America Inc. offers study tours and professional development opportunities focused on textiles. This fall the TSA will offer a Study Tour to South India led by Indian textile scholar, Sandra Evenson.
Since the days of the Roman Empire, South Indian textile artisans have been weaving, painting, dyeing, and embellishing sumptuous textiles for the courts of kings and the markets of the world. Handcrafted textiles continue to play an important role in daily life and are often associated with specific villages, where family life and the village economy are centered on traditional textile production. The focus of this tour is on these textile traditions and the textile villages where these fabrics are still produced by hand.

As part of its educational mission, TSA is offering a $1,500 travel scholarship for one TSA member to participate on the trip. Please see the Awards section of the TSA website for details and application information.
