Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

London's historic Two Temple Place only stages one exhibition per year. For 2020, they're showcasing a plethora of gorgeous, ornate textiles from across the globe, and the pioneering female collectors who catalogued them. The show includes items from Edith Durham's expansive collection of textiles and clothing from the Balkans, and pieces from Olive Matthews' archive, begun when the collector was only 12-years-old. It's also a good opportunity to see inside this delightfully preserved historic building.
