Talk by Jenny Balfour Paul

  • Google Calendar ICS

An illustrated presentation by traveller, writer, artist, curator and lecturer Jenny Balfour Paul.  Her adventurous career began in the 1970s, living in the Middle East, fabric patterning and dyeing in Devon, and conducting fieldwork in Yemen. Indigo, textiles and, later, a Victorian traveller, formed the core of lifelong research and travels, notably in Asia. These led to three books, articles for HALI and other journals, educational work with Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project in New York, consultancy for documentary films and for 'Indigo Sutra' in Kolkata in 2017, as well as exhibition curating. Pieces from her collections are in the Department of Economic Botany at Kew, The Whitworth in Manchester and Oxford's Pitt Rivers Museum.
