How fabric changed history

As someone who has worked in textiles I am fascinated by the structure and history of fabrics. How have we come to the modern day man made fibres we take for granted?  Where did it all begin and how has the histroy of fabric changed us as a society?

Kassia St Clair's talk at 2 on Tuesday 26th February picks up some of the themes her book The Golden Thread. You may have heard it serialised as book of the week on BBC Radio 4.

Visit the website to book, then come along to Room 3.03 of De Montfort University's Clephan Building.

Its free!
