One of our textile design students, Sarah Walker, called into the Advanced Textiles Research Group recently to discuss her work. Sarah’s practice seeks to redefine the perception of textiles by exploring material behaviour through surface manipulation techniques to create multi-functional textiles that can be responsive to changing environments in fashion, interiors and architecture. Her approach has been informed by a strong interest in architecture and the environment of Tokyo, which she visited in October-November 2012 as a recipient of the Paul Smith Scholarship scheme.
