Crafting Textiles from the Bronze Age to AD 1600:

A tribute to Peter Collingwood


EARLY TEXTILES STUDY GROUP (ETSG), 10th-11th October 2014

Franks Room, Wellcome Collection, London, Euston Road NW1 2BE

Peter Collingwood, a renowned weaver and master of textile structures, was a member of the ETSG Group until his death in 2008. As a tribute to his skills as a maker and innovator this conference will investigate some of the ancient techniques that fascinated him including tablet-weaving, braiding, sprang and rug-making.

Proposals are welcomed from academics, research students, museum curators, practitioners and independent scholars. Preference will be given to proposals that include images.
