The Warp and Weft of Life - Weaver Craft 500 Exhibition
To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Dundee' Weaver Craft, Dundee Heritage Trust is putting on a major temporary exhibition at Verdant Works. As one of the famous 'Nine Trades of Dundee', the Weaver Craft has always played an important role in the life of the city. The exhibition will form part of a year long programme of celebrations across Dundee marking this special anniversary.
The show will highlight the importance of weaving to the city's history with themes covered including engineering, training, woven products and the lives of the workers. It will feature a selection of striking framed images from the Trust's rich historic photograph collection including local factories and mills, weaving machinery and Dundee's weavers at work. There will also be showcases of previously unseen objects, photographs and archives from the collections including model looms, wooden patterns used to make the machines, a variety of weaver's tools and woven jute products including hessian wallpaper and a number of original historic photographs of weaving factories.
