The Collier and Campbell Archives

A day trip to Rye to the archives of Collier
and Campbell, to meet the very lovely Sarah 
Campbell. Our task, to make selection of 
original textile designs for the upcoming 
Contemporary Open Print Fair at the Sidney 
Cooper Gallery in Canterbury this July.
Collier and Campbell are responsible for some 
of our most famous and iconic textile designs
and the archives were brimming with the most 
wonderful hand painted pictures and fabric 
samples. It was an overwhelming task as we 
only had room for a small selection but it 
made for the most fascinating and memorable 
day out. A big thank you to Sarah for her 
generosity, for making us feel so welcome 
and for giving us both such a special treat.
