V & A Textiles: Ancient to Modern course

If your interest in textiles has been piqued by seeing the 1718 coverlet at Festival of Quilts you might be interested in the Victoria and Albert Museum year-long course, Textiles: Ancient to Modern. 

Become familiar with textiles in all their glory by examining techniques and designs from around the world and exploring how they have been used in Europe to produce an infinite variety of fabrics and patterns.  

See the different ways in which textiles can be studied and learn about the many skills required to create the sumptuous textiles in the V&A, from enormous tapestries to gossamer-like webs of lace, from glittering embroidery to muted tweeds.
