Was a project designed by Lindy Richardson /Robert Gillan.
My input was to research Ayrshire Embroidery and respond to my research visually. This research was then literally sent to Wuhan University-China . Students from this university were encouraged to respond to this .
The purpose of this project was to exchange techniques/break down preconceived ideas of what textiles is.
This project was important for many reasons-
It allowed me to research my Local Ayrshire embroidery
It allowed me to be part of a group project.
I made valuable connections with Dean Castle - restoration particularly.
I was introduced to design questions that would not have been raised had it not been for this project.
