Event

Fabric of Society - Arts & Crafts - Image & Imagination
There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes hunger and unhappiness
                                               Mahatma Gandhi

We explore the powerful relationship between textiles and the role they have and continue to play in global trade and society. From the sustainability of natural fabrics to weavers' livelihoods in India and Latin America, to the extraordinary ability for the delicate skill of embroidery to inspire and give hope to prisoners here in the UK, we look at how fabric and social progress have been inextricably woven together throughout history.

Jonathan Hope
Art dealer, curator and lecturer on global textiles

Katy Emck OBE

Nigel Atkinson
