Experience the history of England through design. Imagine yourself in the heavy silk gowns of Georgian-era Bath. Step into the swirling floral Arts and Crafts world of William Morris. Get lost in the bustling atmosphere of London, where hidden treasures lie around every corner.
The Grand British Textile Tour is an 8-night adventure. Part One takes us into the countryside where we will explore Bath and the Cotswolds. In Part Two we spend four days discovering London.
Betsy Blodgett will be joining the tour as your guide to all things design. Her interest in textiles led to a career in the sewing industry – initially as a fabric store owner and more recently with the pattern companies Indygo Junction and The Sewing Workshop. When not working with fabric, she travels with her husband, interviewing artists and designers for their podcast, Hello Atelier.
