Description

In July 2020, The Selvedge Foundation will launch its inaugural event, The Selvedge World Fair, a festival celebrating textiles in central London, held over 3 days. At the event, the master artisans will take part in a programme of presentations, offering the chance for guests to hear their stories and learn of  the importance of their crafts in their home countries. Currently, we are working hard behind the scenes to put together a program of talks and workshops that will bring our very special audience the best thinkers and makers who are reimagining the future of textiles.

Call for Workshop Leaders

Selvedge is committed to promoting sustainable alternatives to the global textile industry. With that in mind, we are seeking applications for workshop leaders on the theme of CRAFT:

Repair          Making textiles last

Appreciate    The wonder of fibre and dye

Fashion        Clever construction

Tradition      Passing on our heritage

If you have a workshop that you think will touch and inspire our remarkable audience, please get in touch by email with a short outline and biography.
