Making beautiful hand made textiles is extremely labour intensive, so do we take them for granted? And how long can these traditions continue? What are the prospects for the makers, and the traditional way of life represented by such wonderful textiles?
Dianne & Jim Gaffney of Textile Traders will look at the past and possible future solutions in this thought provoking talk illustrated with some of our very best textiles from around the world.
Next Workshop: Saturday 21st March
Join us at Castle Court Quilters, where Today's Quilter contributor and Sewing Quarter guest designer Victoria Carrington will be teaching us how to make a beautiful Applique Clock.
