....and I am back after my summer vacation, with lots of projects on the horizon to blog about.
I am currently preparing for an exciting 8 week workshop I am doing with Dr Emma Neuberg (founder of The Slow Textile Group) at the V&A Museum called Slow/Fast digital and manual Textiles design. The workshop runs alongside the major exhibition Diaghilev and the Golden Age of The Ballet Russe and examines the exquisite and innovative textile work of the company and the impact it had on the early Twentieth century art, theater, ballet, fashion and textiles. Working with hands on techniques and digital technology we hope the workshop will reflect the spirit of the Ballet Russe era through Slow and Fast textile techniques and paces as well as sustainable design theories.
I know this is going to be a rich and fascinating journey.
Diaghilev and the Golden Age of The Ballet Russe, V&A starts 8th September
Fast/Slow Paces, Les Ballet Russes Textile Techniques made easy, The Sackler Center from 8th Oct
