Tuesday 20th August 2019 1.30 to 3.30pm
Come and join our penultimate talk of Augst as we look at Paisley & Renfrewshire Weavers – who were they? where did they live? What did they weave? This talk will explore the life of Weavers, looking at their influence on the town over time, their weaving skill, poetry and literacy, and their radicalism leading to their strike over the sma’ shot and the way in which Paisley became known through the pattern.
The Talk will be held in the Sir James Clark Biulding, Abbey Mill Business Centre, Seedhill, Paisley, PA1 1JS
