Tracing the Blueprint

Tracing the Blueprint

Exhibited from Saturday 15 March to Sunday 30 March, 2014 

'Blaudruck', the resist printed indigo fabric of Central and Eastern Europe, has a fascinating social history.

Using photographs, words, cloth samples and clothing, 'Tracing the Blueprint' describes historic and current craft production in Hungary, and how these small white on blue patterns made their way via trade, settlers and the Manchester printers, to Southern Africa.

This exhibition first showed at the Devon Guild Gallery in BoveyTracey in 2012. It is curated by Devon Guild Member, Hilary Burns and anthropologist Dr Jacqueline Sarsby.

The exhibition is supported by the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, the Elmgrant Trust and the Stroudwater Textile Trust.
