Explore the wonderful world of colour and learn about its science and application within textile design.

From understanding the science behind the production of colour to demonstrating the skill and knowledge required for its effective application, the display offers an in-depth exploration of colour's creative power.

Items from the collection show how shade, composition and tone can dramatically alter the essence of a work and are key to the most iconic and timeless designs throughout history.
