Illustrated Talk – Margo Selby: Art into industry

Saturday 20th August at 11am. Tickets £12.50 for Students and £13 for Adults.

Margo Selby is a renowned British textile artist and designer. Her design philosophy is focused on pushing the boundaries of weaving to create contemporary stylish fabrics for a range of textile applications, uniting the very best weavers and high quality fibres to produce beautifully crafted products.

We are delighted to welcome Margo to the Museum of Carpet. As a centre of heritage, art and industry we share Margo’s interest in the relationship between man and machine, hand and industry. This promises to be a truly inspiring morning.

Tickets for this event will include free entry to the museum galleries and the summer exhibition ‘Magnificent Design’, where you will be able to see an example of Margo’s ‘Festival Rug’, which has been kindly loaned to the museum for the duration of the exhibition.
