Event Description

Today textiles for clothing or decoration are taken for granted, but it was not always so. This lecture unpacks the history of how cloth and yarn were coloured and how the different colours represented power, achievement and desire. Using a variety of illustrations, it sheds a forgotten light on how important textiles have been in European history. Lecturer: Susan Kay-Williams
