On 29th January 2016, in Huddersfield, the TCoE was proud to host the 1st Community of Interest meeting for the TCBL project.

This was an exciting, successful day attended by an audience of senior representatives from national and local textile designers, manufacturing, business support, local government and universities.

TCoE Managing Director Bill Macbeth and local MP Barry Sheerman reminded the audience of the importance of the textile industry to the local area and highlighted some of the ways in which Huddersfield was also in the forefront of advances in technology that could transform textiles. Jesse Marsh, TCBL Project Director, provided an excellent overview of what TCBL is about and how, when and where businesses and individuals could get involved with the project over the coming months. He highlighted a number of the services in development that participants will be able to take advantage of via the project.

There were spirited discussions over what type of ideas and concepts might be applicable to TCBL with notable contributions from delegates, including Jenny Holloway and Clare Hussey. Conversations were carried on and developed through the networking opportunities provided during the day with the possibilities of a new Business Laboratory and a Business Pilot emerging as a result.

Part of the TCoE’s Making Laboratory was in use with a number of people currently unemployed but with experience or interest in sewing as a business opportunity. They were using the facilities as a taster session under the watchful eye of one of our expert tutors, Sue Taylor.

A short video of the event captured the thoughts of some of the participants: Hear from the delegates.
