Biography

Matthew Taylor joined the University of Huddersfield in 2008; he is a Senior Lecturer and Course Leader of Textile Practice.

Matthew graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a BA in Fine Art before setting up a fabric screen-printing business called Northern Backdrop after receiving funding from three awarding bodies, The European Regional Development Fund, Hulme Regeneration and The Princes trust fund.
