Event: Silk Textiles with Frances Pritchard at The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester

MEDATS - Silk Textiles with Frances Pritchard

Event date: Saturday 9 April 2016, 2pm

Frances Pritchard, curator of textiles, will introduce a limited number of participants to the collection of historic silk textiles belonging to the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. The event will take place in the Studio and will last an hour and half. Meet in the foyer of the Whitworth Art Gallery no later than 1.55pm.

Please note that this is a MEDATS (Medieval Dress and Textiles Society) event, but it is open to non-members. The cost is £5 per person for members and £8 for non-members.
To reserve a place please pay online via Paypal at www.medats.org.uk. (N.B. if you are interested in attending this event, I would advise reserving a place promptly, as the cut-off date for sending cheques by post was 1 March 2016.)

Allocation will be on a first come, first served, basis, but in the event of large numbers it may be possible to arrange a second tour of the silks at 3.30pm. Participants are asked to please bring their own magnifiers.
