Reviving the William Liddell Collection

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

This exhibition will showcase a 2-year Heritage Lottery funded project reviving The William Liddell archive, a collection of over 1600 glass plates used in the Jacquard damask weaving of Irish Linen dating back from the early 1900s – 1970.The exhibition will exhibit a selection of the original plates supported by documented findings and stories from the road shows.New work developed as a response to the archive will be presented as a range of samples and sketchbooks outlining the innovative techniques created by bringing together a weaver and printer. Dass and Belford picking elements from their disciplines and through interrogation, testing and conversation have developed textile ideas not possible within the field of one discipline. This approach also sings praises to not only the past but also to new viable techniques that could be facilitated in industry. A familiar pattern using a different language, inspired by the past to look forward.
