REIKO SUDO - NUNO CORPORATION Wonderful talk by Reiko Sudo at the Glasgow School of Art last week as part of the Futurescan 3 Conference. Inspirational stuff ! This piece shows a new woven fabric that has been developed, which when wet allows the fabric to be folded like origami, reducing the need to produce heat set pieces.

Blogsite Development

This blog site has been set up as a trial run for students to view newsworthy items and for our external links to see what is happening at the University of Bolton in the area of Textile/Surface Design.

Students are also developing their own blogspots which we will provide links to - they are undertaking this as part of Professional Practice and to support their final major project. We will also review gallery and exhibitions visits, websites and links which are relevant to personal research as well as posting interesting notes and articles, and most importantly images of work in progress etc.

What do you think????
