Cloth Cultures – Season 3 – Ep 4

Amber Butchart talks to artists Nick Jordan and Jacob Cartwright, poet Emily Oldfield and English Heritage historian Andrew Hann. They discuss Larksong – a collaborative work by Nick and Jacob for this year’s British Textile Biennial which was a joint commission with English Heritage, and takes place at the nonconformist place of worship, Goodshaw Chapel in Rossendale. Tune in to hear about how hand loom weavers built the chapel, the connection between the land, music and poetry, the Larks of Dean, inspiration from the pre-industrial landscape and the history of the space.
