Learn about sustainable textile design from an industry expert.

‘Design for Disassembly’ is the first in a series of full day Masterclasses for the textile industry run by Zero Waste Scotland.

Taking place on 2 December at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design at The University of Dundee, the Masterclass will be delivered by fashion designer Fioen van Balgooi. Fioen will challenge participants with new perspectives on design, stretching them to their creative limits in the search for design fit for a circular economy, where nothing is wasted. Fioen has undertaken extensive research on eco-effective fashion design. She has six years experience in sustainable textiles and design for disassembly, and has helped many designers to incorporate sustainable design practices into their work.

Spaces at the Masterclass are limited and individuals with an interest in attending are required to fill in a short form to demonstrate the value they would gain through attendance. The form is available on the right of the page and should be returned by the 16 November at the latest.

The Masterclass will be held at: Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design (DJCAD), Stitch Room – 309, Crawford Building, University of Dundee, DD1 4HT

Fioen will also be delivering a public lecture about sustainable textile design on 3 December. You can register for this free evening seminar here.
