Join curator Kathryn Warburton and explore the vast Langley Pattern book collection. See how society and politics influenced and inspired designs.
Macclesfield Museums design archive contains over 1,000 pattern books, dating from the late 1800s-1990s. Delve into the collection and find out why these books are some of curator Kathryn Warburton's favourite objects in the museum's collection.
Through exploring the Langley pattern book collection you will discover Macclesfield's lesser known history of block and screen printing. It’s a chance to see how society and politics influenced designs and a great opportunity to gain some creative inspiration.
Grab a cup of tea and join Kathryn for this online talk. The talk will be held online via Zoom. 'Give what you can' donations are welcome.
