The exhibition ‘Textile and Memory’ is a unique collaboration between two artist/writer Kathleen Mullaniff and Emma Dick and the Dean Castle Textile Conservation Team and the Dick Institute. The exhibition underlines the contribution that textile-makers have made and continue to make to the intangible cultural heritage of East Ayrshire and this project aims to encourage local community members to regard their own textiles heritage with a renewed sense of value and esteem. It is envisaged that through this artistic intervention, local community members may rediscover long forgotten elements of textile heritage among their family archives and ‘bottom drawers’ and the project will create a real ‘buzz’ about textiles of East Ayrshire and Scottish crafts in general.

The contents of the exhibition shall take the form of textile art works made by the Textile Team, archive material, digital print/embroidery, drawings and an artists’ book that records the ‘findings’ of this exhibition and celebrates the textile history of East Ayrshire. The exhibition will look like a ‘cabinets’ of curiosities’ and shall be exhibited in glass display cases. Kathleen Mullaniff and Emma Dick shall display original drawings, paintings and the new technology of digital print on fabric working alongside the Textiles Team as they work.
