All Sun Jester's talks and entertainments aim to enlighten, divert and amuse audiences of all sizes and ages.

Nowadays we tend to take clothing for granted, regarding what we wear as easily available, cheap and disposable. This talk re-introduces the 'invisible history' of cloth and weaving, using a practical exercise, samples and images to explain why cloth can show us so much about the past and how important it has been to world history.
