Zero Waste Fashion Design Book Tour and Workshop series

On Saturday the 6th of February (Waitangi Day in New Zealand) I’m going to begin a bit of a whistle-stop tour of US, UK and Sweden that will take me up to the 1st of March.

USA: If you are in San Fransisco and you’re interested in attending a workshop you can do so here! Space is limited so registration for the event is required. You may register for the complete two-day workshop, on Feb. 8 and 9, which includes the lecture/book signing (Monday, Feb. 8, 10:45am – 12:30pm) and workshops (Monday, Feb. 8, 1:30 – 4:30pm and Tues., Feb. 9, 9:30am – 4:30pm) or just the pre-workshop lecture/book signing. Then on the 10th of Feb I’ll be speaking at De Young Museum courtesy of the Textile Arts Council – register here.

Lastly I’ll be attending the fabulous Creative Cut Conference in Huddersfield where I’ll present a paper about Make/Use written by the Make/Use Research Team.

In between all this I’ll hopefully have time to catch up with the wonderful Amy DuFault, Titania Inglis, Julieana Sissons, Julian Roberts, Rickard Lindqvist, Lynda Grose!
