Byzantine Silk on the Silk Roads | A talk by Sarah E. Braddock Clarke

26/07/2023 @ 14:00 - 15:00


Join co-editor and contributing author Sarah E. Braddock Clarke for a talk about the new book by Bloomsbury Visual Arts, London, ‘Byzantine Silk on the Silk Roads: Journeys between East and West, Past and Present’

Sarah reveals glorious Byzantine woven silks from the infamous Silk Roads. The content will be explored with examples of historical textiles from world-class museums and archives. The influence of the rich Byzantine era is still felt today where contemporary textiles and fashion deliver evocative imagery, rich textures, and patterns in jewel-like colours – a feast for the eyes and the mind.

Sarah is Senior Lecturer in Fashion Design at Falmouth University. Her area of research lies in materials and technologies, fashion, textiles, and cultural identities with a particular interest in East – West exchanges.
