Waste Nothing - finding a home for the discarded

This sounds really interesting.....this is the information that came with the flyer. (The exhibition is apparently closed on 24 and 25 September)

Throughout history, spinning and weaving traditions around the world have employed second-hand textiles which are re-used, repaired, and recycled to reappear in a completely different guise to start a new life. These traditional crafts have always made use of the by-products and waste matter from other processes to ensure that as little as possible is  wasted of precious resources. Many of these ancient techniques are still in use today. This exhibition brings together original textiles and yarns designed and made by the members of the London Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, breathing new life into old textiles, yarns and other materials. The Theme of the exhibition reflects St Martin in the Fields’ outreach activities with disadvantaged and homeless people.
