Textile Futures Salon - 'What future for living textiles'


A series of talks and panels over two days, will explore how textile designers inhabit other design fields and cohabit with the world of science. In recent years the potential of nano- and bio- technology has caught the imagination of a new generation of textile makers, particularly in the fields of fashion and architecture. The science is here and the Textile Futures Research Group, University of the Arts London, is keen to interrogate. How much is our discipline changing and are we as designers and consumers ready for the next material revolution? Day one 'Living Textiles' in relation to the body, investigating textile and fashion science Day two 'Living Textiles' in the context of the built environment and our everyday relationship to this The seminar features both national and international speakers.
