28 Hands Make Light Work, A World Factory Conversation

7.30pm. £5.

An alternative to fashion week: see the hands behind the seams.

Does mass production forget the people? At this café event Zoë Svendsen and Simon Daw present a prototype of our World Factory shirt. Part research method, part art object, the shirt is an especially designed consumer item, manufactured for us by a Chinese factory, which through bespoke digital technology makes visible all the people and processes behind its making.

World Factory explores shifts in political ideology through the lens of the global textile industry from 19th century Manchester to 21st century China.
