Co-created Virtual Patchwork by TSTG!

The Slow Textiles Group spent a great weekend inspired by Liberty's of London quilt-maker, Katherine May teaching hands-on fabric geometrics.

Then, following TSTG director, Emma Neuberg's instruction in how to convert these into digital animations, members of the Slow Textiles Group worked together on the first ever co-created virtual digital patchwork! 

Kate, Geraldine, Katie, Christina, Pennina, Manda, Red, Veronica, Emma, Susana and Tania thought they'd share this first incarnation of it with you here! This represents the first international virtual 'patchwork' animated and created internationally in an afternoon by top textile designers!

The workshop concluded with a series of textile animator, Tania Grace Knuckey's extraordinary, poetic, evocative and stunning textile animations in the Print Room Cinema! Much excitement, dialogue and future thinking was set in motion in anticipation of TSTG Geometrics Season: Symposium, Exhibition and Catalogue 2013!
