ALKE SCHMIDT: WONDER AND DREAD

Thu 15th March 2018
11.00am

Moorside Mills, Moorside Road, Eccleshill, Bradford, BD2 3HP

Tales from the Global Textile Industry. This large show includes the works from the previous Tangled Yarns project plus a number of new pieces inspired by the Bradford wool industry. Alke explains: The new works include some interesting things for Textile Society members, for example I worked with a British Alpaca farmer/textile designer and a weaving company to recreate a patterned alpaca/silk fabric from Titus Salt's famous 1853 "lustre" dress fabric collection.

The museum has permanent displays of textile machinery. Spend some time learning about Bradford’s textile past.
