Journal of Textile Design Research and Practice
I am a founder editor of the Journal of Textile Design research and Practice, published by Taylor and Francis (first published by Bloomsbury in 2013).
The journal aims to create a forum to facilitate, stimulate and disseminate research in the domain of textile design and practice. Encompassing a range of approaches, disciplines and outcomes, the journal publishes submissions from the following areas: research through textile designing and making; research informed by textiles; and research for textile design education - encompassing pedagogic studies into the development of textile designers, practitioners and researchers.
Within these areas, the journal is interested in the following: interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary approaches and the role of collaboration; relationships between traditional and contemporary practices; the application of new and traditional technologies and materials from both technical and aesthetic perspectives; sustainable textile practices, interfaces between research and industry; pedagogy for the education and continuing professional development of textile designers and practitioners; new research methods in the field with illustrative case studies; and the textile design process including the role of drawing and the significance of craft.
