Film Screening: Indian Textiles

  • Free; seats allocated on a first come first served basis.

    In collaboration with the Crafts Museum, New Delhi as part of their Festival of Short Films on Traditional Indian Textiles

William Morris was inspired by the beautiful quality, colour and design of Indian textiles. These three short films are a compelling portrait of the communities of craftspeople who make traditional textiles in India and give us a rich insight into the complex and highly skilled processes used to make them. This special event will include an introduction to the William Morris Gallery's recent work in India and this collaboration with the Crafts Museum, New Delhi.
