This Textile Stories Study Day, in collaboration with the Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings Visitor Centre in Shrewsbury, will explore textiles in relation to work, working people and working practices. There will be talks, displays and demonstrations which will examine textiles from many different angles.
From smocks, to tatting, to workers' experiences in the Flax Mill, to the cotton mills of Manchester, the event will examine many of the interesting ideas and histories associated with working with fabric.
This will be the sixth Textile Stories Study Day to be organised by the English Department, University Chester and is designed for anyone interested in textiles and their fascinating stories.
There will be a variety of stalls selling textile products, along with demonstrations and informational areas.
