Heather Martin

Senior Lecturer & Course Leader
<p>Heather is a practising designer, creative entrepreneur and an educator who disrupts the conventions of design to shift beyond the boundaries of fashion, art, craft, business and design activism.</p> <p>Critical making, propositional thinking and a constant questioning of the framework all propel the work that Heather undertakes in the studio, in business and in the classroom.</p> <p>Heather relocated to the UK from the west coast of Canada to begin postgraduate study with the Glasgow School of Art where she recently completed a Masters of Research in Design Innovation.</p> <p>In Canada she worked under her own conceptually driven internationally recognised fashion label MONO and comes from a background in education, leading fashion and product design courses at both Emily Carr University and Vancouver Community College.</p> <p>UN-MAKE &amp; RE-CLOTHE is a new practice-based research project for Heather’s design firm MONO. It pilots investigations using the constraints of circular economy design ideologies, to generate insight into how design can innovate future capabilities and systems within fashion design.</p> <p>Glasgow School of Art and Royal College of Art have collectively commissioned components of the UN-MAKE &amp; RE-CLOTHE work as part of a larger collaborative research venture into manufacturing for the circular economy.</p>
