Join us for an inspirational and informative study session on fabrics and fibres through the centuries.

Find out about the special properties of wool and why it bounces, the early experiments of synthetic silk, which city was called the 'cottonopolis' and how corduroy is woven. Experienced tutors take you through the different printing and woven processes and the methods of fibre identification within manufactured cloth. Our selected talks and study sessions will introduce you to techniques, manufacture, how trade influenced fashions and offer a close-up opportunity to view historical and contemporary textiles.

Day includes: two short talks, one fibres session, one fabrics session
