Talking Textiles Seminar

Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Johnson/Kaplan – Auditorium, A 106 66 West 12th Street

Textiles have the power to rekindle our faith in humanity. They bring together the fabric of culture through the crafted techniques that have been passed on throughout history. Whether it’s in the ceremonial dying of a natural yarn, the wearing of an embroidered veil or the upcycling of a discarded piece of trash, this year’s Talking Textiles Conference shows us how the loom can truly take materials to another level. come join 8 inspiring speakers from around the world to see the spirituality in textiles.

The Talking Textiles Conference is an inspiring and educational seminar about textiles for fashion and interiors - exploring the important trends, fabrics, yarns and techniques for the seasons to come. Hosted at Parsons in New York, the event elevates textile education for both students and professionals alike.
