108 | A Chat With Kassia St Clair
Listen to Episode 108: A Chat With Kassia St Clair
This week on Tea & Tattle, I’m joined by the writer Kassia St Clair, to discuss Kassia’s latest book, The Golden Thread. I’m such a fan of Kassia’s work, having loved her first bestselling book, The Secret Lives of Colour, which is a fascinating exploration of the history and meaning of 75 shades of the rainbow.
In her most recent book, The Golden Thread, Kassia explores how fabric has shaped history, bringing the reader on an incredible journey through time and around the world as she examines linens spun in Ancient Egypt, to the glorious silks of China and the famous wools of Great Britain.
I was so interested to learn what first sparked Kassia’s interest in the history of textiles and colour, as well as more about the surprising discoveries she made during her research.
This is last Tea & Tattle episode of the current season, but I’ll return with further conversations with inspiring and creative women in May for the Spring/Summer season.
