Textile Toolbox - Resources

Resources

In this section of the site you can access information to make your own textiles and host your own events. We are creating downloadable guidelines for all the practice-based Mistra Future Fashion research we have been conducting, and encourage you to have a go yourselves, and then tell us how you got on. There are workshops designed by the individual researchers, collaborators and partners, from many disciplines, including how to build your very own pop-up exhibition! A new download will be added each week. Click on the list on the right to activate the download.
