Presented by Tami Stewart, Course Leader of the BA (Hons) Textile Design course at Leeds Arts University.

Tami will present her research on the 1940s-50s ‘Americas’ print collection at the Bradford Textile Archive. It will look at the man behind the collection, James Cleveland Belle and the Manchester Cotton Board’s Colour Design and Style centre support to the cotton industry at the time. All told through beautiful fabrics from the collection in a very visual presentation.

This lecture will present the collection as a historical narrative told through textiles in a collection of fabrics aimed to inspire British designers at the time. It will explore the idea of textiles as historical documents and the stories they tell about time and people, about creativity and about innovation with limited means.
