Architecture and Textiles

Join us at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester on Nov 6th and 7th for two days dedicated to exploring the relationship between textiles and architectural form.
We will examine how designers respond to the shape, scale and aesthetic character of buildings, and how they apply and adapt materials and processes to create textiles for public, corporate and private spaces.

Keynote speech from Alice Kettle, plus talks, visits, conference dinner and more.
