Haptic and Hue
Fourth season of the Tales of Textiles podcast
by Jo Andrews
The fourth season of Haptic and Hue’s Tales of Textiles started on April 7th, 2022. This time the stories focus on people and textiles facing hardship and difficulty, but who have survived and often flourished against the odds. The new season has tales of the first people who were called refugees, fleeing violence and intolerance, people who carried with them profound textile knowledge and skills, stories of celebration expressed through dress amidst great deprivation, a look at how flea markets have developed and changed and why we love them so, and accounts of a cloth people risked their lives for, smuggling it in secret creeks at the dead of night.
Textiles have an incredible power to talk to us if we can hear them. They comfort and console us, create memories, define who we are and what we might believe in. Textiles are a detective story you can hold. Haptic and Hue’s Tales of Textiles, hosted by handweaver, Jo Andrews, are an invitation to explore a world of colour and touch.
