Black History Month Textiles Day

Find inspiration in the Horniman Museum’s collection of historical and contemporary textiles, before returning to CoolTan Arts for an afternoon workshop in the West African technique of Tritik dyeing.

During the workshop with CoolTan’s Textiles Department, participants will form an idea on paper then work through the day to reach a finished product. Free refreshments will be provided.


The workshop will be led by textiles tutor and practising artist Lu Firth, who has received training from the Horniman Museum in using their collections for community learning and also has extensive knowledge of textiles.

Places are limited so booking is essential!
