Flax Futures

Welcome to Flax Futures, a series of proposals from Journeys in Design, aiming to make new contributions to the shared material culture revealed by Our Linen Stories programme, in collaboration with colleagues and organisations met en route.

These proposals recognise Scotland’s part in the stories of Europe and beyond: as they develop, we hope they will strengthen international links with our partner ‘linen nations’.

As a member of ICOM UK (International Committee of Museums) your curator has devised projects that acknowledge the vital collaborative role of museums, exploring new ways to celebrate our shared design history and material culture.
