Blanket Technologies: Capturing Heritage Textile Techniques

Project Leads: Professor Judith Mottram and Professor Sandra Kemp

Pattern / Patrwn

Led by Professor Judith Mottram, this project explores colour and pattern, approaches to recording skills and knowledge at risk, and cultural memory through heritage textile technologies.

Pattern / Patrwn, a series of displays of Welsh Blankets in The Ruskin, provide a backdrop to reconsidering the role of regional identity, tourism and functionality attributed to high value textiles.
