SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER Chris Spring from the British Museum

Arriving in King’s Sutton two years ago, how could we have known that Oxfordshire would turn out to be such hotbed of world textile fans? In 2018 World Textile Day Central is shaping up to be really something. Focusing on our theme Working Together, our SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER will be Chris Spring, curator of the British Museum’s Africa collection. To get you in the mood, here are some pics of last year’s event.
