Making It in Textiles

The Campaign for Wool, The Clothworkers’ Company, The Drapers’ Company and The Weavers’ Company will be collaborating for a fifth year to provide a free conference for final-year textile degree students. It is an invitation-only event with students nominated by their course tutors.

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. 

This is an invitation only event for final year textile undergraduates who have been nominated by their tutors to attend.

The conference will take place in October 2018 at the Midland Hotel in Bradford.
