Become familiar with textiles in all their glory by examining techniques and designs from around the world and exploring how they have been used in Europe to produce an infinite variety of fabrics and patterns. See the different ways in which textiles can be studied and learn about the many skills required to create the sumptuous textiles in the V&A, from enormous tapestries to gossamer-like webs of lace, from glittering embroidery to muted tweeds.Read more
Jennifer Wearden was Senior Curator of Textiles in the V&A's Department of Furniture, Textiles & Fashion until 2005 and is now an Honorary Research Fellow. With experience of the textile industry in Lancanshire, and 28 years working with the textiles collections in the V&A, she now uses her knowledge to devise and deliver successful courses.
I am enjoying every minute of the course - it gets more inspiring every week. A course that combines Textiles and History is the dream ticket for me. If someone is considering enrolling next time then they are in for a treat! Rosemary Tisdall, 2015/16 Year Course Student
