Heritage Quay Archive at the University of Huddersfield is home to a collection of hand-painted designs known as The Gleneden Post-War Design Archive. These images of historical significance, created as visual instruction to plot the construction of Jacquard woven cloth, bare the marks of a working life; their surfaces are torn and cracked have marginal graffiti scattered around the periphery of their pages. Trace Elements is a workshop that utilises images from this archive to encourage drawing as a research tool. Through making, it discusses the transformative process of inclusive creativity, bringing people together, to produce images, animation and stories which may emerge as a creative response to a dormant collection.
