Last year, the Royal Society of Edinburgh awarded a major grant to the University of Glasgow and National Museums Scotland to explore textile manufacture in 19th century Scotland. Drawing on previous research and existing artefacts at both partner institutions and elsewhere this project, ReINVENT, brings together academics, practitioners, artists and amateurs in its aim to understand the making of historic textile artefacts. Research workshops and network events were held during 2013 and drew on collections and academic resources as well as local communities. Knowledge generated through this project informs research and teaching on an MSc, Doctoral and Postdoctoral level and a major arts and sciences gallery project at National Museums Scotland due to open in 2016. This paper looks at the research questions behind this ReINVENT, presents the outcomes of the workshops, their significance for the new museum galleries and outlines a Royal Society of Edinburgh funded follow-up project, ReCREATE, which will run over the next 18 months.
