Marnie Collins is a teaching fellow in Textile Design and Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching within the School of Textiles and Design of Heriot Watt University, based at the historic High Mill on the Borders Campus.
Marnie will share her experience linking weave design education with industry and focus on the design development process; helping weave designers take their ideas from research to the selection of raw materials, through technique, process and visual communication.
