Big Elements, Big Textiles

Alongside other things… we are currently moving forward on one of our R&D projects in Tactility Lab

We’ve been working with Craftstone over the last few weeks. They are a local precast manufacturer who make high quality, well finished products using a wide selection of natural sands and aggregates.

We’ve been testing out our technology with them to see how it scales up and fits within their processes and to see whether such large scale elements tie in with TF’s emerging thoughts on thermal mass.

These are photos of the large panels just out of the mold – so there are still a bit ‘green’ – ie they need a few more days to cure and dry out fully.

This work is funded by Creative Industries Innovation Fund and TF

new workshop, old forms


images of Mouldcraft of Kilrea’s workshop (a shed within a shed within a shed) where we will be making larger scale elements (for exhibitions in August/ September 07) similar to sketch proposals we made at the beginning of this process 18months ago. It’s always good to revisit old ideas in case they offer new ways forward. Work supported by Creagh Concrete.
