Growing flax here and there, now and next
Flax Futures: This set of Design led projects explores themes emerging from Our Linen Stories. They are developed in collaboration with key allies around Scotland and beyond. We are delighted to present project updates here.
Our Linen Stories on Facebook: In addition, we run a dedicated Our Linen Stories Facebook including personal linen stories from you. Many of us have a Linen Story: of growing and processing flax today, of relatives with a link to lost factories, of treasured linen pieces, of artworks or new designs in linen, flax or composites.
Journeys in Design Newsletters: Our Linen Stories is the first programme in a ‘material world’ series from Journeys in Design. Our occasional Newsletters update on Our Linen Stories together with our other Journeys in Design. You can sign up to receive our latest Newsletter below.
Journeys in Design on Social Media: We run dedicated Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts @journeysindesgn which highlight all our latest news. You can link in and sign up using the social media tags in the header above.
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’. By collaborating in task groups for each, we hope to progress from proposal to development stage and onward. 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.
