Come and explore the amazing crysede textile collection at Penlee House, and discover its origins in the landscape in Cornwall. The fascinating and colourful prints designed in the 1920s by Alec Walker for Cresede textiles were often based on real places in West Cornwall. Look closely at the designs and you can see farm buildings, boats, lighthouses, trees, fields and even people. Why not pick up a discovery kit and head out into the landscape? Create your own design and don't forget to tag us on instagram! @penleehousegallery
