Programme

River & Cloth was completed in October 2010 and this website was last updated on 22 October 2010.  The site is no longer maintained, but a copy remains for research and reference. Resource packs on textile techniques and the history of textiles are still available for download from the Resource pages.

Programme Overview

Our creative programme of workshops, training and visits with schools and community groups will bring to life the stories of William Morris, Arthur Liberty and explore the diverse influences which made such impact on Merton's textile industry.
