Crafting Futures

British Council and Wallpaper* Thai Edition’s design talk is part of their collaboration in crafts and design, and held as part of the Fai Gaem Mai’s exhibition on Lanna Ethnic Textiles. The talk will focus on a wider perspective on crafts and design around the world, featuring trends, initiatives, innovation, collaborations, and impact, as seen through the eyes of UK and Thai experts, bridging the world of crafts and design together. It will also discuss the present situation of traditional textiles and design, specifically Tai Lue textiles, based on a UK-Thai design residency in Pua, Nan, Thailand, in order to explore the values & place of traditional textiles in the present society. 

The Forum will be accompanied by a marketplace which provides business opportunities for local artisans and entrepreneurs under the network of Fai Gaem Mai.
