Nyonya Needlework: Embroidery and Beadwork in the Peranakan World

Peranakan Museum 24 Jun 2016 - 18 Jun 2017 10am to 7pm (Monday to Thursdays, Weekends), 10am to 9pm (Fridays)
Nyonya Beadwork and Embroidery

This exhibition celebrates the art of nyonya needlework, a vibrant part of Peranakan Chinese heritage. Spectacular curtains and hangings, delicate purses, handkerchiefs, and slippers were painstakingly stitched with tiny beads, silk, and gold and silver threads for special occasions and as gifts.

Some of the finest examples of nyonya needlework, from the Peranakan Museum and major international collections, will be displayed. Visitors can discover the ingenuity and skill embedded in the art, the importance of tradition, and the innovations inspired by the dynamic, multicultural environment of the region.
