Tracing the history of 20th-century art in textiles, the exhibition’s highlights include prints of work by Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol. New Lanark is an 18th century cotton-spinning mill village, one of Scotland’s six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, with a rich history in textile production and innovation.

In its early years, it was the one-time largest cotton manufacturer in Scotland, producing over 60 shades of high-quality woollen yarn using historic textile machinery and launching the world’s first Organic Tartan in 2015. To celebrate the arrival of the exhibition – and the village’s rich history – New Lanark is is commissioning a special ‘New Lanark’ textile print to incorporate into a new range of promotional merchandise, which will be sold exclusively within the New Lanark Mill Shop.

Entrants should submit their work, following the T&Cs available at the website above, by emailing marketing@newlanark.org

Entries must be received by 11.59pm on Sunday 11th February 2018.
