You may have noticed that we embrace animation and film narratives as integral to contemporary textiles practice. This is because textiles manifest time and story-telling in their very DNA. Even digital code is textiles inasmuchas each pixel echoes the needlepoint stitch or punchcard hole in order to make the image whole.
Last year we showcased our resident textile animator Tania Grace Knuckey’s witty, subtle and evocative textile animations at our Slow Studio Cinema event. Knuckey says: “I have to put timelines into textiles to bring them alive!”
Thank you for sharing a wonderful 2012! We hope you love this Jonathan Saunders pattern digitally animated by Emma Neuberg and we look forward to more inspirational, ground-breaking and fun events together in 2013!
Each of those designer’s work is so diverse, and many others’ who have worked with LPT, yet all display a mix of lyricism, wit and energy that is quintessentially British. That’s what makes them so timeless, iconic and desirable!
The London Printworks Trust is synonymous with nurturing and promoting these qualities so it is with great excitement and honour that TSTG has their first Practice+Theory event there this Saturday!
There’s no advert for this event as it’s exclusive to the Slow Design School Programme however, we’ll be putting some pics on Twitter for you to enjoy!
If you’re not in the United Kingdom, just ask for a login link and we’ll send you a recording of the event!
Meet like-minded people, learn new things, develop your practice, get access to the theoretical framework of sustainable design, ideate, collaborate, exhibit and get funding through the Slow Studio platform!
Send an email with Open Day as the subject to guarantee your place!
TSTG just had a wonderful Textiles Talk from award-winning textiles animator, Tania Knuckey,
in the Slow Studio’s Print Room Cinema!
Tania’s vision is to bring dynamism to textiles through film-making and animation.
This a small snippet of one of her many amazing textile films being screened at the Slow Studio Cinema yesterday! This was the first public ‘cinema’ viewing of her film collection and it was sensational!
The next Slow Studio Cinema showing is Dec 1st where you can see a collection of Textiles in Fast Fashion movies! Come, SEE!
