Material Memory

Have you got a piece of fabric or a textile object that has been handed down through your family, mended and repaired over the years or travelled with you as you’ve moved from place to place?

If so, the British Textile Biennial invites you to get involved with Material Memory, a crowd sourced exhibition as part of this year’s British Textile Biennial that celebrates these cherished items and the stories they tell in the crypt of Blackburn Cathedral.

They will be holding a number of local roadshows over the next few weeks where you can go along, show them your items and share your stories over a cup of tea!

At the roadshows, the team will take down the details of your item, take a picture and then get back to you if they can include your item in their exhibition. All items and stories will be credited to their owner. If you cannot make it to the roadshows but would still like to get involved, see their website for more information.

Items/Objects must have some sort of connection to Lancashire.

For any further enquires please contact emily@britishtextilebiennial.co.uk
