Enabling hybrid ways of making within Scottish contemporary design


We’re looking for six new participants to join our collective of six textile practitioners. These six new non-textile practitioners[1] should be willing to take part in an 20-month co-design research project exploring the potential of multi-sensory collaborative design/practice. Participants will be asked to experiment with digital audio processes, collaborate with a textile practitioner, and develop a series of collaborative artefacts throughout the term of the project. Furthermore, these designs will be shared publicly through a creative and reflective digital platform and exhibition. A small honorarium will be offered to each participant to acknowledge the efforts of their work. To apply, please use the form below. 


[1]We define non-textile practitioner as those makers and designers employed outside of a textile practice. This could include but not limited to, digital makers/artists, crafts people, or artisanal makers.
