Saturday 10 September, Meet Lauren MacDonald
14:00 - 15:00 BST (British Summer Time)
Online event, hosted by Lauren MacDonald
Lauren MacDonald is a multidisciplinary designer, writer, and the founder of textiles studio, Working Cloth. Her approach and aesthetic have been tempered through academic studies in Material Culture and Textile Science, vocational experience in the fashion industry, and an ongoing obsession with materiality, form, and function. Her practice is focussed on traditional textile handcrafts and spans interaction design, installation, sculpture and stitched form. Her first book In Pursuit of Color: From fungi to fossil fuels: uncovering the origins of the world's most famous dyes will be out in November 2022.
