British Textile Biennial 2019

The first British Textile Biennial threw a spotlight on the nation’s creativity, innovation and expression in textiles against the backdrop of the impressive infrastructure of the cotton industry in Pennine Lancashire.

Throughout October 2019 we looked at fabric as a means of expression; exploring textiles as a vehicle for protest and cultural identity in installations, performances and art works that took a dynamic look at our relationship with that most basic and ancient of human creations, cloth.
