Raw Materials: Textiles at Valence House
Raw Materials traces the forgotten industrial history of east London along the River Lea, supported by The National Lottery with funds awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund. This year followed the textiles trail from the 17th Century to the present day, uncovering the stories of silk-weaving, calico printing, jute spinning and the invention of dye colours.
