Living in Silk

We highly recommend you visit Nottingham Castle for this exhibition.  Travel through 5000 years of Chinese silk beginning with some of the earliest surviving fragments of silk cloth in the world, before continuing with sumptuous garments and accessories from the Qing and other dynasties.  Learn how silk has been produced for millennia and discover the rich colour, symbolism and exquisite craftsmanship of Chinese silk.  That's all before making that compulsory trip to the gift shop to pick up a souvenir... Perhaps we can tempt you with something from the Debbie Bryan Heritage collection in the glass cabinets???
