Joanna Bletcher


PhD Researcher : Jewellery Designer

I’m a designer and researcher, based at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee, Scotland. My current research is practice-led, and uses exhibition as a method to explore the challenges of communicating contemporary design innovation. I’m interested in how the inter- and trans-disciplinary nature of contemporary design and craft practices changes how we approach public presentation.  How do we share the value and potential of design and craft for stimulating and supporting innovation?  I’m looking forward to joining the Summer Camp this year, to document this unique, collaborative experience, to learn more about the exciting, emerging field of smart and e-textiles, and to meet the innovative, international practitioners who collaborate to make things happen!
