About this event

Re-Making History is the fourth collaborative project with Charnwood Arts undertaken by first year BA (Hons) Textiles: Innovation and Design students in the School of the Arts, English and Drama.

Students were given a brief to explore Loughborough and the surrounding area, seeking out its rich heritage in UK textile production along with other industries such as bell founding and transport. 

The students were also encouraged to tap into local resources and explore an aspect of Loughborough’s local history to inspire a contemporary, innovative textile collection. 

More specifically, they were asked to explore the links between drawing and stitch, demonstrating this through drawing, mark-making, colour, shape, pattern surface and experimental investigation with materials. Final designs and fabric samples concluded this creative exploration.

The work of 31 students was selected for exhibition including drawings, sketchbooks and material experimentation.

This work is being exhibited at two locations:

Charnwood Museum: 16 April – 10 June

Martin Hall: 25 April - 23 May
