Patterns Reimagined: from Crafts to Fashion
Tuesday 15 May
Join us to explore resist dye techniques across cultures and their evolution in the fashion industry. Starting at ULITA, an Archive of International Textiles, we will discover traditional methods of resist dye pattern making from across West Africa, India and Indonesia. The session then continues at the M&S Company Archive to see how these craft techniques have been adapted and used in high street fashion.
Booking essential, visit Eventbrite to reserve your free place. Light refreshments included.
ULITA’S exhibition Resists: exploring resist-dyed textiles across cultures runs from Wednesday 25 April–Thursday 13 December 2018.
