Author: Cheah, Hwei-Fe'n;
Cheah Hwei-Fe’n examines parallel techniques of embroidery, work with gold thread, lace, and drawn needlework in this profusely illustrated catalogue to accompany an exhibition at the Peranakan Museum, Singapore, held from 24 June 2016 to 18 June 2017. In her careful analysis of the techniques associated with Peranakan objects, she reveals a complex network of cultural connections. The various types of needlework were practised by women and men, and drew upon techniques from Europe, India, China, and the Malay world.
