Talking Textiles Series - Huguenot Footsteps: Spitalfields Silk, Satin, Muslin, Rags

Sunday 25th April 2021

The Story of the Spitalfields Weavers: this tour impresses those interested in Georgian architecture, the Huguenot story, Spitalfields silk, and the many weavers who lived and worked in these streets. The Ogiers, the Courtaulds and the Le Keux, families that once dominated the textile industry. Hear about the Huguenots who were baptised, married and were buried at Christ Church, the rich silk merchants who lived in elegant houses and the life of the journeymen who spent every working hour weaving Spitalfields silk now to be found in museums around the world.
