Future Textiles Lab

The Future Textiles Lab is a Limerick-based collaboratory active in education, research and innovation  in the domain of smart textiles involving researchers, academics and students from the Limerick School of Art and Design and the University of Limerick.

In collaboration with LSAD and IxDA Limerick, the Future Textiles lab is organising a series of workshop and talks dedicated to smart textiles in the autumn of 2018.

Members of the lab are involved in:

    • the Amazing Lace 2018 symposium, dedicated to Innovation and Tradition in Irish Lace.
    • the eStitches Limerick group, organising talks and workshops on e-textiles.
