SEPTEMBER 15 AND 16, 2018
Save The Dates! Join us at the Helms Design Center for our first Textile Summit. We're bringing together leading voices and practitioners working in the field of mindful use – and reuse – of materials.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Saturday: speakers and panels exploring questions of sustainability, innovation, technology, and collaboration in the world of textiles. Sunday: hands-on workshops.
Mindful Materials should be of interest to practicing artists, emerging artists, and designers and decision-makers in the manufacturing and apparel industries who are looking for ideas and talent to influence their business practices.
Confirmed speakers include

We are working up a trunk show and pecha kucha - please email us if you'd like to be involved in either.
Registration will be open the end of July.
