Linen: Material InHERitance

4 October 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

In this seminar the audience will hear from female creative professionals who have come to linen from different perspectives (fine art and fashion design). Both discovered a personal family history with linen and this has continued to shape their research and development as they consider how skills, objects and textile knowledge pass between generations.

Both speakers will introduce their work and practice followed by a group discussion unpicking some of the common threads running through in their approaches to this material, including the importance of heritage, material knowledge and sustainablity.

Speakers – Laura Wilson (visual artist), Amy Anderson (creative director, Kindred of Ireland clothing brand).
Discussion host: Jill Phillips (designer and researcher).
