Textiles expert shares knowledge at Crysalis seminar

The biggest names in textiles shared their expert knowledge during a specialist seminar for an EU venture led by the University for the Creative Arts (UCA).

The Crysalis Cross-Border Professionals Programme, which took place over three days at UCA Rochester last month, boasted presentations from industry experts such as the 'patron saint of print' Mark Eley of Eley Kishimoto, designers Agi & Sam, fashion blogger Amelia Gregory and The Design Trust.

Part-funded through the European Regional Development Fund, the Crysalis Project is a cross channel collaboration exploring and driving innovation in the textile industry at centres in Belgium (Ronse), France (Ville Calais) and the UK (UCA Rochester).

The event was designed to encourage textiles graduates, start-ups and established businesses from the Crysalis Project's three regions, who wish to learn about innovative digital textile design and production techniques from some of the UK's top fashion and textile professionals.

Denise Harmer, Crysalis Project Manager said: "The variety and high level of speakers helped make the Crysalis Professional Programme a great success.

"We wanted delegates to go home feeling inspired and informed and I think the high calibre of speakers and practical workshops made certain of that.

"This conference is the first of several events that Crysalis has planned across Europe over the next few years to help take textiles innovation to a new level."

Seminars on pitching to industry, marketing, social media, pricing and intellectual property protection, provided practical tips which could be instantly implemented.

Delegates also got hands-on with the latest technology during workshops hosted by international textiles designer and UCA course leader, Neil Bottle, which utilised UCA Rochester's coveted Gerber Suite and digital printer. They experimented with inks and print fusing to produce print samples of their own to take home.

French textile designer, Valérie Maguin, said: "The Crysalis Programme has given me great advice, energy, ambition and confidence over the last three days. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to attend the workshops."

The Cross-Border Professionals Programme is one of several initiatives that the Crysalis Project has planned over the next two years - each textiles centre will lead events, exhibitions and practical outcomes that will benefit textiles research in Europe.
