Flax Futures

Saturday, August 5, 2023 - Thursday, September 14, 2023

Where does flax and linen meet local resilience and climate change? Find out as Journeys in Design co-design their exhibition and events across East Lothian.

The flax plant, traditionally processed into linen, has been grown for generations in Scotland. Today, flax plays a part in contemporary moves to support local resilience and tackle climate change.

Flax Futures from Journeys in Design, explores this exceptional potential, with new and engaging designs and initiatives on show, from Scotland and beyond.

Their Exhibition and Events focus on future heritage, community resilience, soil health, sustainable textile production and material innovation.

Opening Saturday 5 August, curator John Ennis will offer an introduction to the programme at 11.30am and 2.30pm; the exhibition runs Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm, Sundays 1-5pm.

Their Walks, Twilight Talk, Flax Chats, and Demos run throughout the programme, evolving with the help of guests from across East Lothian. Dates and times are posted as individual entries on Eventbrite and on their social media @journeysindesign.

The John Muir Birthplace Museum offers a wonderful insight into the life and work of Scotland’s pioneering conservationist, and any visit to Dunbar is a treat thanks to friendly locals, top notch eateries, a beguiling shoreline and exceptional surrounding countryside.
