Brenda King

Editor at Large
Conference Organiser and Research Symposium Convenor

We are saddened to report that Dr Brenda King died suddenly on 4 July 2021.  We are indebted to Brenda for her work and dedication to the Textile Society for more than 30 years.

Brenda is a design historian, writer and independent scholar. Following 30 years as a lecturer in design history and museum and heritage studies, her research and publishing is ongoing.

“I have enjoyed curating numerous exhibitions that were the result of research into the wild silks of India and the Wardle family of Leek. Taking objects out of store for the general public to enjoy is always pleasing.”
