Linked one day symposium: The Architecture of Cloth, Colour and Space
A One Day Symposium on the theme of The Architecture of Cloth, Colour & Space: Saturday 27 October 2012 11 am – 6 pm
The Chapter House Room, Gloucester Cathedral
Stroud International Textiles are delighted to be presenting this day of discovery and debate in the glorious setting of Gloucester Cathedral where the accompanying exhibition is to be held.
We are pleased to announce that confirmed keynote speakers and contributors for the symposium are:
Ptolemy Mann - Chair
Anna Glasbrook - Textile artist & designer
Alex Haw - Architect & Director of Atmos Studios
Margo Selby - Weaver, textile designer and business entrepreneur
Sophie Smallhorn - Fine Artist and Architectural Colour consultant
Garth Lewis - Artist, writer and Colour specialist
Now, more than ever, we live in a climate where diversification and the exchange of ideas across several different disciplines is paramount; to survive creatively we have to apply our skills broadly but with finesse and personal signature. In keeping with the exhibition title: The Architecture of Cloth, Colour and Space this symposium aims to engage you in the working practice of exceptional people across the several disciplines the title defines.
A colour theorist who engages with computer technology and paint, an artist who wraps facades with colour, an architect who circumnavigates the world through food and innovation, a weaver bridging the commercial craft divide, a textile artist creating installations for outside spaces; they all bring something different to their respective worlds and ours. Join us in the monumental gothic space of Gloucester Cathedral for a day of creative provocation and glorious debate.
