Identifying Textile Types and Weaves 1750-1950Language: English
This information pack has been produced to accompany a one-day workshop of the same name taught by
Sue Kerry and held at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery Collections Centre on 29th November 2007. The
workshop is one of three produced in collaboration between DATS and the V&A, funded by the Renaissance
Subject Specialist Network Implementation Grant Programme, administered by the MLA.
The purpose of the workshops is to enable participants to improve the documentation and interpretation of
collections and make them accessible to the widest audience. Participants will have the chance to study
objects at first hand to help increase their confidence in identifying textile materials and techniques. This
information pack is intended as a means of sharing the knowledge communicated in the workshops with
colleagues and the public.
