Woven research: a symposium

It brings together designers, design and art historians, curators and researchers to address a series of themes including: weaving and clothing’s production and economic futures, designers’ engagement with material culture and the locale, and how contemporary practices and technologies enable the development of ancestral weaving techniques.
