Silk by Candlelight , School of Textiles, Wednesday, 04. December 2019





Allow your senses to overflow with this glorious evening event celebrating the drama and sensuality of silk. You will be greeted with a glass of prosecco as textile historian, Mary Schoeser, and School of Textiles Director, Kate Wigley, will share some of the silk highlights from the collection: from rich 17th century velvets, 19th century ribbons to 20th century damasks. Towards the end of our talk the lights will be turned down and candles lit to allow you the opportunity to see these beautiful textiles in their original settings and explore the very important job the gold and silver yarns woven within these precious silks had to do! This is a one-off opportunity to see such a precious textiles and spaces are extremely limited.
