TACTILE TOO is a contemporary textiles handling resource, showcasing the work of emerging Northwest textile makers. The resource will be used alongside the existing resource TACTILE which comprises works commissioned from some of the UK’s best-known and innovative textile makers including Michael Brennand-Wood, Alice Kettle, Lynn Setterington and Michele Walker. TACTILE TOO will be available for students to look at, handle and gain inspiration from. The resource will focus on makers that are using textiles expressively. The work that each maker provides will serve to teach students about creative practice and also encourage them to experiment with new techniques, as well as gain an understanding of career paths.
