Join us at an upcoming event at Maryhill Burgh Halls to hear about the impact and legacy of Turkey red, Paisley shawls and the Greenock rope works, and enjoy the opportunity to see historical artefacts and archives up close.

ReINVENT is generously funded by a Knowledge Exchange Network grant by Royal Society of Edinburgh and Scottish Government.

ReINVENT is a unique national project that shares information to reconnect and recreate the materials and techniques of the world-leading 19th century Scottish textile industry. This special free one day public event in Glasgow celebrates the culmination of the project by sharing what we already know and, as importantly, what we don’t. 

By bringing together a wide range of local historians, museum curators, conservators, academic scholars, students and interested individuals, we anticipate a stimulating and stimulated interchange of ideas and understanding

To be held on Saturday 7th December 2013
