Traditional Rungus Beading Workshop with Gerai OA
via @gmbb.kl on Instagram:
Learn the traditional Rungus “piruruhon” technique, modified to create a “glang tali tinutub” - a beaded bracelet. The same technique is used to create the iconic Rungus “pinakol” beaded bandoliers worn by both men and women as part of their traditional dress.
This workshop is facilitated by @gerai.orangasal, a volunteer-run, nomadic stall selling crafts by the Orang Asal (indigenous minorities) of Malaysia; 100% of sales is paid to the named artisan.
Gerai OA will also be having a small tabletop sale so you can also get your hands on some crafts!
