This exhibition will showcase innovative linen lace concrete surfaces, the culmination of a 1 year AHRC (Arts Humanities Research Council) project.
Trish Belford (Textiles) and Ruth Morrow (Architecture) have worked together for 12 years developing patented textile and concrete surfaces. This exhibition will be the first showing of the results from this project, a multi-disciplinary collaboration with MYB Textiles lace weavers in Scotland, Queen’s University and Ulster University.
Designs are sourced from the archives of Northern Irish damask weaving company William Liddell. The project is supported by textile expertise from Ulster University and concrete expertise from Queen’s University Belfast, developing new surfaces investigating both flat and curved elements.
