Participant call for Aural Textiles

Are you a practising textile designer working in Scotland interested in co-design workshops exploring sound-inspired pattern design?    

Closing date: 5 Feb 2018

Participant call for Aural Textiles: Disruptive designs of Scottish heritage textiles. Aural Textiles aim to challenge the visual bias in designing and disseminating contemporary Scottish textile patterns, by exploring the use of the Scottish sound landscape to influence contemporary textile design through a collaborative design process, initiating a network of practising textile designer-creators working in Scotland who wish to explore non-visual sources of design inspiration.

Funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh and hosted by the Glasgow School of Art Institute of Design Innovation, we’re seeking up to eight participants who actively practice textile design and creation within Scotland to join a co-design research project exploring the potential of sound inspired pattern development. Participants will attend two workshops, and be asked to experiment with audio files, pattern designs, and develop textile samples from those designs. The designs will be shared publicly through a creative and reflective process of patterns books and exhibitions.
