Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered why many of our daily phrases include textile words and references?

Find out the origins of words such as drab, ragamuffin and shoddy, and why giving someone a clout is not such a bad thing after all; how expressions such as 'dyed in the wool' and being 'left on tenterhooks' as still pertinent today. So, if you're at a 'loose end', then why not join us as we unravel the fabric of words and phrases with this fun and informative talk.
