An exhibition celebrating the creative and cultural legacy of Bernat Klein (1922-2014); an inspired colourist, textile designer and artist who won international acclaim for the dazzling textural designs he produced in the Scottish Borders from the 1950s to the 1990s.
This exhibition presents original pieces by Bernat Klein, which in turn have inspired new work, capturing the vibrancy of Bernat Klein’s legacy. Featured are prize winning students from the Fashion Communication and Design for Textiles programmes from the School of Textiles & Design, Heriot-Watt University. The exhibition also showcases the Spring/Summer 2021 collection ‘High Sunderland’ by the Scottish menswear designer Kestin Hare, inspired by Bernat Klein’s modernist home in the Scottish Borders.
