A chance to view textiles from the Goldsmiths Textile Collection and share your own textile projects and interests.
Talking Textiles is a get-together for anybody interested in textiles and curious to find out more about the Goldsmiths Textile Collection. A small selection of textiles from the Collection is available for viewing and discussion at the Constance Howard Gallery. For those keen to be involved further, there is the opportunity to research a chosen textile and to share findings or questions at the following session.
This session on ‘Cross-Cultural Textiles: Indian influences’ will be led by Jasleen Kandhari, Lecturer, Indian Textiles & Dress at University of Oxford and PhD Scholarship Candidate on the Indian textiles trade to Kenya. Following the handling session in the Gallery, Jasleen Kandhari will deliver a talk on ‘The Kenyan Kanga Textile: Cross-Cultural Influences from India’ with examples of textiles from her own collection for viewing. The event will end with tea and coffee, during which participants are invited to continue discussion and share their own projects.
