To celebrate the opening of London’s Fashion and Textile Museum’s Artist Textiles Picasso to Warhol exhibition at New Lanark, the 18th century cotton-spinning Mill Village is inviting entries for a special design competition.
The winning design will be transformed into a unique ‘New Lanark’ textile print.
Entries must be received by 11.59pm GMT on Sunday 11th February 2018.
Draw inspiration from New Lanark’s social history and industrial heritage, textile production, architecture, natural surroundings or the Falls of Clyde, or feast your eyes on the ARTIST TEXTILES Picasso to Warhol touring exhibition, which traces the history of 20th century art in textiles. With highlights include prints of work by Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol, you really can let your imagination take control!
Your textile print should be an all over repeat pattern that embodies the theme of ‘Living and Working at New Lanark’. For more ideas, view content at www.newlanark.org , www.instagram.com/NewLanark and www.facebook.com/NewLanark
The competition is open to the general public, design students and existing designers. You’re encouraged to be as creative as possible, while keeping in mind the commercial viability of the design and its appeal to New Lanark visitors including international tourists, visitors from elsewhere in Scotland and the local community.
New Lanark will work with the overall winner to incorporate the winning pattern into a range of promotional textile items to be sold exclusively within the New Lanark Mill Shop. The winner will also receive a Place on a specialist workshop (‘Couture Inside Out’ OR ‘Fashion Drawing’) at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London (Travel and accommodation NOT included), as well as Remnant Kings fabric vouchers, a framed copy of print and Complimentary passes to ARTIST TEXTILES Picasso to Warhol exhibition and the New Lanark Visitor Attraction.
