Ever & Again project completion

The Ever & Again:Rethinking Recycled Textiles project officially ended on 30th November 2009, after four years. The project has seen the development of ground-breaking research into ways that designers can upcycle textiles and has included an exhibition of design prototypes in 2007 and a major symposium in 2008.

The final outcomes from the project are being compiled into a publication, Upcycling Textiles which is due out later this year, edited by Rebecca Earley, with a foreword by John Thackara.

The publication will include 22 illustrated essays by leading international academics and designers including: Dr Otto von Busch, Professor Stephen Scrivener, Dr Dorothy Maxwell, Cyndi Rhoades , Tamsin LeJeune, Dr Emma Neuberg, Helen Carnac, Amy Twigger Holroyd, Dr Jessica Hemmings, Kate Goldsworthy, Clara Vuletich, Professor Marie O’Mahony, Dr Lucy Norris, Dr Jo Heeley and Professor Mike Press and Professor Kay Politowicz.

It will be available through the TED website and there will be more information shortly.
