Contemporary Textiles Lecture: Looking Beyond Needle And Thread

All Events


To help us understand how we have evolved a more Contemporary style of textiles in the twenty-first Century that goes beyond needle and thread, I will firstly take the group on a journey back in time to explore the history of stitch from Anglo-Saxon times to the present day.

Anne Davies, freelance textile and mixed-media artist, writer and teacher.
