BA Library Online: Philippine Weaves and the Ayala Museum Learning Packets

In the Academy, we continue our library advisory for readers with this list of books and resources from our library and the Ayala Museum.

Ayala Museum has a collection of resources for asynchronous learning or for activities that children, young people and the young at heart can do offline. Have a look at these photos of the learning packet on Philippine traditional weaving and the companion module on Geometry, Symmetry and Design. Furthermore, it complements the museum's virtual tours, videos and podcasts. Take for example this video on indigenous weaves and garments that blends art, history, a bit of development economics and the role of women as keepers of legacy and traditions.

If you are interested, here is the link to the PDF of the learning packets. You can download it for free -
The packets are also in BA Library Online so you can go here -
For books and resources on weaving, Philippine textiles and indigenous culture and art, here are recommended reads. These books are available in the BA Library.

These pictures books are partly illustrated using varied designs of woven textiles by indigenous groups in the Philippines. The stories are fun to read and humorous. The drawings are simple and very accessible. This makes for a delightful read aloud with beginning readers.
