Helen Hoyte videos
Norwich Shawls, Norwich Red & Pamela Clabburn
Helen Hoyte, MBE, Vice President of the C&TA, author and textile expert, shares her vast knowledge of Norwich shawls and textiles in three excerpts from two days of filming in summer 2018.
Helen’s masterclass was filmed by Eye Film in celebration of her 95th birthday, using the Geoffrey Squire bursary fund. It is hoped that the filming will become part of a larger project about the history of Norwich textiles.
