Celebrating international contemporary woven textiles practice
 
Speakers:        Ann Richards (UK) / Lotte Dalgaard (Denmark) /
Ptolemy Mann (UK/US) / Jun Tomita (Japan)
 
Coinciding with a number of exciting publications and exhibitions by these four leading international weavers, this mini-symposium will celebrate very personal yet inter-related approaches to woven textiles practice - From deep research into material and structure to create textured and shaped cloths, to the extensive use of traditional and evolved dying and colouring techniques for contemporary applied art and design.
 
In conjunction with The Handweavers Studio & Gallery (London), the event will include book signing of new titles by the speakers, as well as the chance to purchase specialist weaving materials. Chrome Yellow Books will also be offering a fantastic range of textile and related titles.
 
Convened by Tim Parry-Williams, Senior Lecturer Textiles [Woven], Bath School of Art & Design, this is the inaugural event of the new Textile Research Centre at Bath Spa University’s Corsham Court Campus.
