Participants

The learners were divided into multidisciplinary and transnational groups of 3-4 (total of 17 students). Suggested group size is 3 learners to ensure a range of knowledge and skills.

The 5 teachers from UAL-LCF had a background in interaction design, physical computing, fashion design, entrepreneurship and innovation.

Participating learners (all from MA level programmes) presented a range of expertise, from fashion and textile design, design for the fashion systen and sustainability.

Additional staff included external speakers from academia and industry, also acting as mentors.
