The project is a six-month feasibility study funded by a larger project titled ‘Future Makespaces in Redistributed Manufacturing’, a two-year research project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The study was undertaken in partnership with Kalopsia Collective, a micro-manufacturing unit based in Edinburgh, Scotland, and MakLab maker space in Glasgow.

Together we conducted practice-led research to produce a small collection of fashion accessories within a circular economy model. In addition to the collection we prototyped a potential future maker space for circular textile design to scope what tools, techniques, equipment and materials might be required for a future sustainable manufacturing scenario.
