Come and hear me talk about Horrockses


Hello all!!!!

So I am super busy at the moment, and don’t have much time for blogging, but next tuesday (19th November) I will be talking about Horrockses and conducting a handling session with some of the dresses from my collection at the RCA as part of “Death by Slideshow”. The event is open to all, so if you would like to come along and learn some more about Horrockses (oh and Persian textiles… I am talking with a fellow rather fabulous RCA student Dorothy Armstrong)

The event is held at the RCAcafe. If you have any further questions about the event drop me an email: or tweet @unmakingthings (co run by myself and the wonderful Annie Thwaite) and we can provide you with some further details!

And a little more detail on the talk series that this is part of:

“Unmaking Things presents: Death by Slideshow -A Talk Series Designed to Re-evaluate the Position and Direction of Contemporary Design Research.  

Disseminating some of the vibrant research issuing from students of the V&A/RCA History of Design Postgraduate Programme; Unmaking Things is pleased to announce the launch of its first talk series, Death by Slideshow.

Running each Tuesday evening throughout November, this series will offer insights into a range of material relating to the field of design research, including design practice and theory drawn from an array of geographies, periods and cultures.

Featuring two contributors each evening, this material will then feed into broader discussions around empirical and theoretical research and approaches within the field of design research.

Furthermore the event will reflect on the current direction of design and object-based history; and encourage discussion around the relevance of recent developments to contemporary design practice.”

I hope to see you there on the 19th November!

  12. Its not that your average household cannot afford these increases.
    Begin by turning off lights and appliances when not in use, changing filters regularly in heating and air conditioning units, replace worn weather stripping around doors and
    windows, take a shower instead of a bath to save water,
    hang your wash on a cloths line instead of using the
    dryer. One thing that all roof panels have in common is that, as a result of their design, the cells inside the panels get as much sunlight exposure for as long
    as possible.

  14. In Seattle’s case, the efficiency would be much lower. Once you
    have the necessary equipment to harness this power source and convert it to either electrical energy or
    heat energy to work for your home you will be able to save a
    lot of money. It seems pretty obvious that solar power is generated only during the day and at night there
    is no energy coming from the panels.
