I am incredibly pleased to announce the start of my Travel Fellowship 2017. Funded by the incredibly supportive Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, I will be visiting Japan and Australia through November and December.
My particular aims of the trip include building knowledge and experience within specialist traditional textile tachniques. Natural resources and how they are positively used or reduced in use. Sustainable techniques and how these could be implemented in the UK. Finally, and overarching all the previous aims, the perceived value of textiles.
I will be updating my blog as much as possible over the next 6 weeks with visits and associated archive/museum references.
Please do get in touch!
