Event description

Description



The River Lea has been a long-standing location of innovation for the textile industry, from the early patent of madder printing in the 17th century to 19th century discoveries in synthetic dyes. Chaired by Anna Fitzpatrick, join us for a panel discussion with speakers Mary Schoeser, Katelyn Toth-Fejel and other guests, to explore the importance of the textile heritage in east London.

Anna Fitzpatrick has a background in both fashion and politics and now works to combine the two wherever possible. Anna currently works at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF) at the London College of Fashion UAL, where she also teaches Cultural and Historical Studies.

Mary Schoeser is an internationally respected textile and wallpaper historian who has published widely and has worked in collaboration with the V&A, English Heritage, National Trust and Museum of Modern Art, New York

Katelyn Toth-Fejel is an artist, designer, teacher and natural dye specialist, as well as a partner of the design collective Here Today Here Tomorrow with a studio and shop in east London.

Gallery open from 6pm, but the panel discussion starts at 7pm.
