I am a PhD candidate at Durham University, UK. I am researching the sensory experiences of textile production in Classical Greece. I will be using experimental reconstructions of tools and rquipment, based on visual and documentary evidence, and working with hand spinners and weavers to understand how the senses are used in fabric production and the physical and mental demands which spinning and weaving make on the worker.
