My friend Kirsty left a comment mentioning this conference that the Textiles Forum South West are holding next year- I knew she had attended their events in the past, turns out she's now speaking at them...
More than just a conference, Textile Forum South West is hosting a whole day exploring textile territories - looking, listening and participating in mapping the future together.
We will survey ideas from traditional geographical and textile maps to virtual mapping now; view current personal textile practice using journey as both inspiration and process; demonstrate new routes to networking with like-minded makers and have the chance to participate in making fabric markers for mapping further textile journeys.
Speakers include, Peter Merrett, land surveyor, Dr Hilary Turner, historian specialising in tapestry maps; Kirsty Hall, expert blogger and navigator of the internet; the key -note speaker is Dail Behennah, celebrated maker who is both a Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts and the Royal Geographical Society.
