'Home is where the Heart is' reveals diverse notions of belonging materialised through textile projects from TFRC researchers based at Central Saint Martins. Exhibition pieces range from wallpaper archaeology discovered in domestic East London settings, to inter-woven London underground travel patterns as well as unexpected transformations of fly–tipped chairs and a T-shirts pop up shop designed by Crisis members.

The exhibition will show recent Urban Fabric research from TFRC researchers.

The Textile Future Research Centre
The Textile Future Research Centre (TFRC) is based across two UAL colleges: Central Saint Martins and Chelsea College of Arts. The TFRC hosts a community of practice-based researchers who explore how materials and textiles can enable a more sustainable future.
The Urban Fabric Research Community @ TFRC consists of four Central Saint Martins-based researchers investigating the connection between materials and society. Urban Fabric researchers take a multi-disciplined approach to textile development, with a focus on collaboration across industry and community to develop sustainable socio-responsive textile solutions that empathise with city experiences and promote local ownership.
