The Slow Textiles Group spent a great weekend inspired by Liberty’s of London quilt-maker, Katherine May, teaching hands-on fabric geometrics.
Then, following STG director, Emma Neuberg’s instruction in how to convert these into digital animations, members of the Slow Textiles Group worked together on the first ever co-created virtual digital patchwork. Katherine May, Geraldine Peclard, Katie Faddy, Christina Darminin, Pennina Bartlett, Manda Clarke, Red Isaac, Veronica, Emma Neuberg, Susana Fernandez and Tania Knuckey thought they’d share this first incarnation of it with you here. This represents the first international virtual ‘patchwork’ animated and created internationally in an afternoon by top textile designers.
The workshop concluded with a series of textile animator, Tania Grace Knuckey’s  poetic, evocative and stunning textile animations in the Print Room Cinema! Much excitement, dialogue and future thinking was set in motion in anticipation of STG Geometrics Season: Symposium, Exhibition and Catalogue 2013.
