Textiles in History Susan Kay-Williams Wednesday 20 November 2019

This Study Day is based on three lectures: one on Colour which will include unexpected aspects of colour history, one on Embroidery covering how a 17th century middle-class girl prepared herself for marriage, one on Tapestry which will talk about how Charles I loved tapestry.  It was he who bought the cartoons for the Raphael tapestries which now hang in the V&A.

Susan Kay-Williams is Chief Executive of the Royal School of Needlework, based at Hampton Court Palace.  A fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and the Chartered Institute of Marketing and in 2015 was made a Fellow of the Society of Dyers and Colourists.
