17 September, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

WOVEN Textile festival logo

There are amazing things happening in the world of textiles in Kirklees and the surrounding area. Businesses and academics are working on brilliant new textiles technologies. Hear about some of the most exciting innovative ways that textiles are being used, with speakers drawn from Future Fashion Factory’s community of researchers and industry partners.

Virtual reality technology that allows you to “feel” fabric from thousands of miles away; “smart” clothing that can monitor your vital signs: these are just a couple of examples of the innovations that are being developed in this area.

The event will feature short presentations from speakers with a chance for you to ask them questions. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Prof Parik Goswami, Director – Technical Textiles Research Centre, University of Huddersfield and Co-Investigator, Future Fashion Factory
  • Fiona Haran, Editor – World Textile Information Network
  • Dr Sahar Arshi, School of Design, University of Leeds
  • David Buxton, Roaches International

Sign up now for your free ticket at this online event. The event will take place on Zoom and places are limited so book now. We’ll be in touch with more information nearer the time.

This event is run by WOVEN, in partnership with the Future Fashion Factory.
