Paid Entry (£15.00)

WHERE:

Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF

WHAT:

From the mummies of Ancient Egypt to the lab-blended fibres that have allowed astronauts to moonwalk – fabrics, manmade and natural, have changed and shaped the world we live in. Author @kassiastclair will talk through the history of fabric via the silken dragon robes of Imperial China and the woollen sails of Viking longboats to the Indian calicoes and chintzes that powered the Industrial Revolution (and sparked more than one war).
