100 Years of English Decoration

Sat 12th June 2010

Fashion & Textile Museum
83 Bermondsey Street
London SW1 3XF


Sanderson are celebrating their long and influential history with an exhibition highlighting a remarkable range of wallpapers and textiles, unique not only for their range of styles, but also for the company's technical advances and marketing policy.

Join Mary Schoeser (Textile Society Hon. Pres. and curator of this exhibition) and special guest, Christine Woods (Curator of Wallpapers, Whitworth Art Gallery, and founder-committee member of the Textile Society) for an afternoon exploring the story of Sanderson. Mary will give a short presentation giving an overview of the company, its archive, and the consistent themes threaded through its history, while Christine, also formerly a Sanderson Archivist, will join Mary afterwards in the gallery to take questions.

Tea will be provided.

Ticket price also includes entrance and the exhibition brochure.

For those who wish to explore the Bermondsey area and have lunch prior to the event, there is Hays Galleria (nearly opposite London Bridge station) and several interesting pubs and cafes along Bermondsey Street itself. The Museum also has a cafe.
