Help us to discover Silk and the Jacquard Legacy -

Macclesfield Museums’ collections are an incredible resource for research into design and technology in the silk industry; a new project, Silk and the Jacquard Legacy, led by newly-appointed Project Officer Kathryn Warburton will be uncovering the objects’ potential.

This exciting new project has been funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund and will help us to explore our pattern book, Jacquard card and print block collections in new and creative ways.

We want to include the community, so there will be opportunities for you to discover our reserve collections and volunteer. For more information contact Jacquard Legacy Project Officer, Kathryn via email: [email protected]
