The Centre For Advanced Textiles provides a commercial digital fabric printing and textile design service, consulting to large and small manufacturers as well as to individuals. Digital textile printing technology allows designs and images to be printed straight from the computer screen onto fabric creating exciting opportunities for customised design and allowing photographic quality reproduction onto natural fibres, such as silk, wool, linen and cotton.
This talk by Alan Shaw and Laura Boomer will give insight into the digital printing industry and its use in commercial and educational contexts.

About the Exhibition
SAMPLE is a new exhibition at The Lighthouse, by Collect Scotland. The exhibition aims to shine a light on the bold, innovative, contemporary work being created by textile designers in Scotland. Filling the whole of Gallery One with printed textiles and sculptural displays of large-scale fabrics in a huge exhibition featuring specially commissioned work around five key ‘trends’, SAMPLE shows off the versatility, vibrancy and too-often overlooked talent pool of Scottish textile design.
Collect Scotland is a platform for Scottish textile Design established in 2012. Collect exhibits internationally with an evolving collective of designers and clients include Nike, Whistles, IKEA, Converse and Paperchase.
