New Research Strategies IV Symposium

The 2017 Textile Society Research Symposium brings together new research from a range of textile fields. Curators, historians, artists, academics and PhD students will present their research and the day will begin with a session of three speakers discussing post war textile designers.

Paula Day is no longer able to attend this event as previously advertised. The Textile Society wishes to apologise for wrongly describing Paula Day as the granddaughter of Lucienne and Robin Day; she is of course their daughter. We are truly sorry for any offence that this may have caused.

Free to attend but booking essential. »
