Following a long career as a Senior Lecturer in Printed and Woven Textiles, Linda’s work has spanned international residencies and design projects. Her current research explores new meaning in resist dyeing and the relevance of intangible cultural heritage in contemporary practice. Since her election as Chair in 2020, Linda has worked closely with colleagues to build an ever-increasing community of members, and to strengthen the Society’s charitable purpose in upholding the value of textile education in all its diverse forms.
"Education is central to the purpose of the Textile Society, demonstrated through our extensive awards and bursaries scheme, our breadth of events, conferences and fairs, and through our annual journal and publications. From colour in the dye room to the global culture of cloth, textiles cross boundaries and the many disciplines represented by the Textile Society."
