Twilight Talk – The Golden Thread


The date for this event has passed. Please check What's on for current events.

This event is now sold out.

Join Kassia St Clair, author of The Secret Lives of Colour as she discusses her new book The Golden Thread: How Fabric Changed History. From the mummies of Ancient Egypt and the silken dragon robes of Imperial China, to the Indian calicoes and chintzes that powered the Industrial Revolution and the lab-blended fibres that have allowed astronauts to walk on the moon. Hear Kassia talk us through the history of fabrics, manmade and natural, and how they’ve changed and shaped the world we live in. A book signing will accompany this talk.
