Phd Thesis
Igoe, E. (2013) In Textasis: Matrixial Narratives of Textile Design. Royal College of Art, London.
Using an autoethnographic approach and feminist research methods, this work uses practice, conversation and narrative to articulate the cognitive processes of textile design. It contributes to an understanding of ‘textile thinking’ and situates textile practice against established theories of design research.
