Slow Textiles conference at Stroud

TED members Becky Earley, Clara Vuletich and Emma Neuberg will be presenting their thoughts and ideas at the Slow Textiles Conference part of the Stroud International Textile Festival on Saturday May 8th 2010.

The conference is chaired by Helen Carnac (who curated the Taking Time: Craft and the Slow Revolution exhibition currently on tour nationally) and themes being explored include the use of new technologies in sustainable textile design and the role of the designer in creating 'slower' products and services.
Clara Vuletich will also be running a workshop on quilting and patchwork with Katherine May (whose new quilts are currently in Libertys), from textile collective bricolage on Sunday 9th May.
Tickets are £50 for the Saturday conference and £35 for the Sunday workshop.
