New Zealand textile students to showcase at Wool Expo'13
16
Oct '13
Textile design students from the College of Creative Arts are taking their work on the road as part of the Wool Expo 2013.

The expo will show innovative woollen concepts, such as new woollen shirting fabric and revolutionary colouration of wool, in PGG Wrightson’s retail stores in the central North Island. It is organised by the Campaign for Wool, PGG Wrightson Wool and Massey University.

The students will act as informative guides around the expo in Gisborne, Wairoa, Hastings, Waipukurau, Dannevirke and Masterton. They will show their own and other student work, but also products from well-established firm such as a British-made wool coffin developed by Christchurch company Exquisite Woollen Blankets.

Senior lecturer in textile design Dr Sandra Heffernan says many of the items being demonstrated at the expo represent new science applied to wool and then commercialised. “Wool has been a cornerstone of New Zealand’s cultural heritage and economic prosperity; Dr Heffernan says. by adding value through innovative design, we can make it a strong part of New Zealand’s future.”

The expo will start in Gisborne and finish in Masterton, moving to a new venue each week. It will be open from lunchtime on the Monday to 3pm on the Friday in each venue, as follows:

- Wairoa, October 21-25, Queen St

- Hastings, October 28 – November 1, cnr Maraekakao & Orchard Rds

- Waipukurau, November 4-8, 12 Takapau Rd

- Dannevirke, November 11-15, Barraud St

- Masterton, November 18-22, 38 Lincoln Rd.
