About the event
Join us to connect with the #SustFashScotland community and explore ways forward together.
This month we are discussing ‘How can we support the use of natural fibres in clothing?' led by Dr Lynn Wilson, circular design practitioner, researcher, and educator. Lynn will be joined by designer Di Gilpin for a conversation focusing on wool.
Examining the future of the UK wool sector, Lynn recently completed a short post-doctoral research post at the University for the Arts, London, Centre for Circular Design. Focusing on the future of natural fibres in clothing and wool in particular, this session will explore the benefits and challenges of working with and wearing wool for designers, makers, and consumers. We will hear from both Lynn and Di on why wool is so important in their work and why natural fibres should be supported.
Lynn is the founder of Circular DS International which provides consultancy support to businesses transitioning to circular business models and material practices. She is currently a Creative Entrepreneur within the Creative Informatics Programme at University of Edinburgh where she is developing a Circular Materials Repository.
The SFS Community Call is held on the last Thursday of the month and provides a space to connect and discuss current topics within the #SustFashScotland community.
Please be aware takeaways from the audio and video recording will be used in SFS communication. We may record part or all of the event for publication on our website. Get in touch with our team about any Zoom accessibility requirements.
