TOUR: WARP, WEFT AND WORDS
with Erin Farley
Weave your way around Verdant Works with PhD student Erin Farley
Erin will tell of the growth of Victorian Juteopolis through the rarely heard writings of the workers themselves. You’ll hear the words of the Dundee women – the handloom weavers and Factory Poets who found unique ways of making their voices heard above the looms. Expect political verse, celebratory poems to comfort and cheer, and more than a few satirical looks at life and Victorian society.
