INTERIOR designers Antonia Burnett and Terian Tilston are hosting ‘The Big Cushion Push’ to raise money for Dundee & Angus Food Bank.
They want members of the public to donate their unwanted cushions ahead of a sale at Logie & St John’s (Cross) Church Hall in Dundee on Saturday 10th December.
“As long as they’re in salable condition, we’d love to take them away from you and turn them into food on the table this winter,” Burnett said.
“You might even do some Christmas shopping checked off in the process.”
A new exhibition will showcase the role the design industry could play in the fight against climate change.
“Metamorphis,” developed by Heriot-Watt University’s School of Textiles & Design, will open in The Great Tapestry of Scotland Visitor Center at Galashiels January 17.
The exhibit will literally ‘transform’ with a different exhibit every two weeks, showcasing some of the university’s design and manufacturing research.
It will also include a series of lectures and workshops on how the industry reuses and recycles everyday waste, including by-products of textile manufacturing.
Central Scotland School of Craft and Central Scotland School of Jewelery have joined forces to widen access to crafts.
Dunblane-based duo Rebecca Wilson and Jo Pudelko will deliver free craft and jewelry workshops this fall and winter.
“Access to crafts and jewelry making is very often limited to those who can afford it,” Wilson said.
“We want to remove the cost barrier to give people who may never have had the chance to learn a creative skill the opportunity to participate in our course series.”
