Description

Essex Threads is a one day event looking at the history of the textile industry in Essex and what sustainable methods can be used in the future.

Our Keynote speaker is Edwina Ehrman – Curator of Fashioned from Nature Exhibition at the V&A last year.

You will hear about the Pre-Industrial Textile Industry from Valina Bowman-Burns and John Miners will talk about Textiles in Essex: From Says to Silk, a special reference to Samuel Courtauld and Company.

The Ideas Hub will be around throughout the day to provide advice and demonstrations on repairing clothing and making items from 2nd Hand materials, as well as bringing some of the items they have made already.
The afternoon you will hear about the problems created from how we produce and buy clothing along with a talk from a company that make sustainable clothing.
