Textile Art History

I am really inspired by textiles and this program is about the hidden history of textiles from India.

It starts at Hardwick Hall in England and travels to India. The presenter Griff Rhys Jones is so sympathetic and interested in the making of the art and textiles it makes this film even more fabulous. Be ready for colour, inspiration and sensational insights. The link finishes on the 18th of March 2011 but hopefully will be repeated.
