W O R K I N P R O G R E S S / Material Futures Course

The course MA Textile Futures showcased posgraduate projects at the Work In Progress show in Central Saint Martins. 

Designer Laura Daza had the chance to show her project COLOUR PROVENANCE, the reviving and preserving of ancient colours. Colours that were used in the past and today have been replaced by new synthetic ones. Starting with the premise that people know little about colour; about its history, how it was sourced, crafted and utilized in the past, she aims to rescue traditional methods of producing pigments in an authentic and pure way.
