Inspiration from Historical Textiles with Hannah Lamb

13th May 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

In this talk, Hannah Lamb will share her passion for archives and collections, as well as some of the stories behind her recent creative projects, including a ‘Fragment of a Dress’ (2022) commissioned by the Bronte Parsonage Museum and Incomplete Histories, which she showed during the British Textile Biennial in 2021.

This event is taking place as part of Sunny Bank Mills’ first ‘Threads Textile Festival’ – a weekend celebrating textiles through a series of talks, workshops and a textile market featuring over 40 stallholders per day!
