STUDY DAY: The Warner Textile Archive represents two centuries of creativity and commerce. It includes Spitalfields silks from the late 18th and 19th centuries, Victorian designs by Owen Jones and William Morris, and vibrant examples of Art Deco, Contemporary, and Pop styles.

Acclaimed for the high quality of their luxury textiles, from 1885 the company was also responsible for weaving the silks and velvet for the Royal Coronations and historic palaces.

This event marks the 150th anniversary of the archive with a day of talks about its designers and heritage from Mary Schoeser, Christine Boydell and others.

In collaboration with Warner’s Archive
