Morning – Back to Basics
A hands-on session of trying out new techniques and materials – you might need to bring a pinny.
The Foundling Hospital and Its Tokens
Janette describes her involvement with the London Foundling Museum and how it has inspired her contemporary textile work.
Beginning with a short history of the Hospital, which is the central theme of the Museum, Janette will focus on the tokens and textile in the archives, and how her interest in them led to becoming involved in the exhibition “Threads of Feeling”. This looked at what the textiles could tell us about the eighteenth century but it also led Janette to want to learn more about the museum, its collection and its archive.
