Celebrated Global Art Programme

The Peninsula Bangkok has announced the residency of Thai textile virtuoso Jarupatcha Achavasmit as part of The Peninsula’s celebrated global art programme, Art in Resonance. During her residency, Khun Achavasmit will be creating mesmerising new pieces for an upcoming on-property exhibit.


Through early July, guests can visit her working studio space at the hotel to learn more about the process of creating the art and the concept of the programme. During her residency, which Khun Achavasmit calls ‘Sanctuary Within’, she will be weaving a specially commissioned series of art pieces incorporating recycled materials – including hotel items like office paper, used linens and aluminium amenity tubes – in her studio on 23rd floor of The Peninsula Bangkok.

Guests are encouraged to visit the studio to see the artist’s work in progress, to ask questions about her craft, and to take part in regularly scheduled weaving workshops. One-on-one workshops with Khun Achavasmit will be available each week for the duration of her residency; she will also hold monthly weaving workshop for small groups (of up to six people).


“Jarupatcha’s textiles are exquisite, also deeply thought-provoking,” said Masahisa Oba, Managing Director of The Peninsula Bangkok. “In this case, her works allow us to think about what we consider waste, and what we consider valuable.”
