Textiles: Around the World in 80 Roundels
- What:Free talks & tours
- Where:Hochhauser Auditorium, Sackler Centre
LUNCHTIME LECTURE: Follow the trail of textiles which have travelled the world for five centuries, and 1,000 years earlier were already journeying across continents. These journeys can be traced through one particular pattern: the roundel, or circle-based design.
This lecture follows a trail that begins with Egyptian shen rings and ends with contemporary British textiles, taking in the world of textiles along the way.
Led by Mary Schoeser, Honorary President of the Textiles Society.
