Real Dirty Blue, at Central Saint Martins, tells the story of a century of textile design – from the hand block printed textiles of the 1930s to more recent experiments in knitting, weaving, digital printing and laser cutting.
This free exhibition is a must for anyone interested in textile design.
The focus is on the process behind the finished pieces – the sketchbooks, prototypes and samples that show how the designer’s ideas developed over time. On show are the works of 26 designers, including CSM teaching staff and students from 1927 to 2015. You can find details of the exhibit and designers at the Central Saint Martins exhibition page.
A little fact for you – the title ‘Real Dirty Blue’ is drawn from CSM alumna and teacher, Joyce Clissold’s dye book from which a sample colour, ‘real dirty blue’, has been recreated for the show.
Tuesday to Friday: 11am – 6pm
Saturday: 12noon – 5pm
Please note! This exhibition will be closed over Easter weekend, 25th to 28th March
