Through talks, discussion and the occasional short performance, contributors to the symposium will consider their work in the context of interlacing within and between textiles, e-textiles, pattern, structure and movement, including dance. Interfaces between materials, craft technologies, digital engineering, responsive systems, embodied communications, threads, inter-weaving, intertwining, braiding and building will provide a rich vein of dialogue, experimentation and recent practice-led outcomes.

Chaired by Victoria Mitchell (Norwich University of Arts).
