FALL TEXTILE SUMMIT: MINDFUL MATERIALS

Save The Date!  Join us this September 15 and 16 at the Helms Design Center for our first Textile Summit. We're bringing together leading voices and practitioners in artistic and commercial textile practice to talk about and conduct demonstrations on the mindful use – and reuse – of materials.

WHAT TO EXPECT

We're planning a two day event with a panel and individual speakers to introduce us to some of the newest materials and innovations in the world of textiles. We will also hear from leading and emerging voices in the fields of natural dyeing, upcycling, and mending and repair. We'll talk about sustainability and what it means to each of these artists and practitioners. 

Mindful Materials should be of interest to practicing artists, as well as designers and decision-makers in the manufacturing and apparel industries who are looking for ideas and talent to influence their business practices.

More information and registration will be available in early Summer.
