Tansa, the Japanese word for exploration, is the link that binds this Anglo-Japanese exhibition. The project began with exploration – a research visit to textile workshops, galleries and studios in Japan undertaken by eighteen UK artists including Cockpit maker Kendall Clarke, led by Professor Lesley Millar, Director of the International Textile Research Centre. All of the UK artists are involved in higher education at the University for the Creative Arts as lecturers, Post- Doctoral researchers and MA and PhD students. The Japanese artists they met included National Living Treasures, Grand Masters and renowned contemporary textile artists.
