Textiles have an incredible power to talk to us, if we can hear them. They comfort and console us, create memories, define who we are and what we might believe in. They are a detective story that we can hold. Haptic and Hue’s Tales of Textiles, hosted by handweaver, Jo Andrews, are an invitation to explore a world of colour and touch and listen to the chatter of cloth.
The second series of Haptic and Hue’s Tales of Textiles is currently being uploaded every fortnight on Thursdays. If you would like to sign up for news and links to the podcasts as they are released, please use the form at the bottom of this page. If you are interested in the books that relate to each episode, or just the best books about textiles, you can find them on our new Haptic and Hue reading list, which is hosted by Elementum – a small independent bookshop and journal in Dorset.
