Profile Information

The Textile Thinking Research Centre focuses upon four key areas: Science and technology, sustainable futures, craftsmanship and the handmade, enterprise and business engagement. The Centre is composed of creative practitioners, textile historians and technicians all of whom are committed to the creation and dissemination of high quality research in textiles at University of Huddersfield. The Centre promotes the development of practice led research as well as traditional theoretical approaches and supports a growing research culture through conferences, production of artefacts, patents, exhibitions and publications. Textile thinking has inspired and evolved our relationships with materials, space and form. The Centre aims to explore the future of textiles and surfaces within different industries, education and creative contexts.
