Rural Design Week 2019, Italy / by Faith Kane

Very pleased to be taking part in this exhibition. We are showing a few samples emerging from a project within the Materials Design for Sustainability NZ area of my current work….the work to be shown at RDW in June resulted from a small project called ‘NZ Flax Felt’, which was funded by Massey University in 2018. An expanded team of people have contributed to and collaborated on this ongoing work including; Tanya Ruka, Angela Kilford, Kurt Komene, Scion NZ and AgResearch NZ. And it is underpinned by the kaupapa of Rangi Te Kanawa of Muka Ltd. and critical guidance from Prof Huhana Smith.
