Study Day with Angela Thompson

Wed 16th October 2013



Angela Thompson is hosting this Study Day at her home in Abberley, Worcestershire, using examples from her extensive research collection of embroideries from the Balkans, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.

The aim of the day is to understand how the people of various countries express their Identity and individuality in the form of Costume and Textiles.

At the same time, we will explore how, as Textile Enthusiasts, we can Identify the various textiles, work out their origin, construction and possible age.

A careful selection of Textiles from Eastern Europe and the Balkans will be displayed in the morning. The afternoon will be devoted to the area of Central Asia.

Members can examine the textiles and may take photos or digital images for their personal use only.

The day will run from 11:00 – 17:00. Tea and coffee will be provided but attendees will need to bring a packed lunch.

Full details, including travel instructions will be sent upon receipt of your booking.
