Raw Materials: Textiles will examine the rich and little-known history of textiles along the Nunnery Gallery’s local River Lea Valley.

About

Made possible with the kind support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, the exhibition traces the Lea’s textile history from the 17th Century to the present day, including silk, calico and jute and the invention of dye colours. The exhibition will tell the stories of industry through loans and archival material, alongside newly commissioned works by the project’s resident artists Freya Gabie and Sarah Desmarais.

Raw Materials: Textiles highlights a fast disappearing history and includes heritage maps, an online resource and a programme of events including walking and boat tours, artist-led workshops and discussions. More can be found on the Raw Materials website.
