Here’s a reminder that there are still places available to attend the TRIP (Textile Research in Progress) conference next month in Loughborough. I would dearly love to attend myself as the conference is very much in my area of interest, but sadly cannot afford to this time around. That’s why you’ve all got to go and report back, see!

Here’s the info:

TRIP : An international symposium exploring the role and relevance of traditional ‘hand skills’ in contemporary textiles, and the value and status of craft process.

Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th November 2011
School of the Arts – Loughborough University, Loughborough, UK

A reminder to book your place for the forthcoming  TRIP (Textiles Research in Process) symposium. The papers are now in and we are looking forward to a stimulating and thought provoking event. Abstracts will be available to view on the website soon.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:
Bradley Quinn

Through a series of illustrated presentations and panel discussions by leading artists, designers, researchers and technologists, the symposium will seek to explore and define the role of hand skills and the value of process in contemporary textiles.
