Marianne Straub: a weaver's life
Sat 23 September 2017, 10:00 – 15:00 BST
On Marianne's birthday, we celebrate her incredible life with a special study session lead by one of her close friends and colleague, Mary Schoeser. After an introductory talk on Marianne's work, Mary will lead a special detailed study session on her personal and commissioned woven fabric samples. After lunch, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Marianne's contribution to industry through her extensive knowledge of woven structures, followed by a further study session using Marianne's personal collection of world and historical textiles.
