Making It in Textiles
The Campaign for Wool, The Clothworkers’ Company, The Drapers’ Company and The Weavers’ Company will be collaborating for a third year to provide a free conference for final-year textile degree students.
The aim, as with the previous conferences, is to forge stronger links between educational institutions and the UK textile manufacturing industry and in particular to provide support to final year textile students by giving practical guidance about how the industry works. Industry experts will provide insight into different roles within the industry, and set out the requirements for employment after graduation. Students will also gain practical knowledge of a working mill through local mill trips.
The conference will take place in October 2016 and again be based in Bradford. Full details will be provided later and invitations will be sent to tutors who will be asked to nominate students to attend the event.
