This year followed the textiles trail, uncovering the stories of silk-weaving, calico printing, jute spinning and the invention of dye colours.
The exhibition is currently at the Nunnery Gallery, Bow Arts. The SDC was delighted to be able to contribute to the exhibition by lending a number of objects from our archive.
