Old Bleach Linen Company: Distinct by Design

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


The speaker is Catherine O’Hara, a lecturer in design history at Ulster University who is currently researching the Old Bleach and how it contributed to trends in fabric design in the 20th Century. Catherine has made several visits to Randalstown to examine the company archives and is very enthusiastic about Old Bleach designs from the inter-war years and the 1950s. Her talk should be of great interest to local people and anyone interested in Northern Ireland’s textile history and heritage.
