The project is divided into four phases, Phase 1, Phase 2, Phase 3 and Phase 4.

  • Phase 1 shall include the Textile Museum , covered plaza, entrances and the courtyard.
  • Phase 2 consists of the Weaving School and the Textile Conservation Centre.
  • Phase 3 is the construction of the Administrative Blocks.
  • Phase 4 is a banquet hall that will seat over a thousand people. With the population of Thimphu soaring over the years and the booming entertainment industry, there is a great need for a hall of this size. This would also be one of our core means of generating income for the sustenance of the Academy.

The Grand Opening of Phase 1, the Textile Museum, will be held on June 5, 2013 where more than 100 foreign guests and 250 national guests will attend the grand opening.

Her Majesty Gyalyum Sangay Choden Wangchuck, Chairperson of the Academy will grace the occasion as the Chief Guest.
