To whet your appetite, some words of advice from participating artists and designers:

‘Material breakthroughs require that you put faith in the process of experimentation’.
— Marcos Kueh Sheng Pang, textiles

‘It’s an intense process of listening to the material to find out how to adapt to make the next step. Finding your own specific recipes and techniques brings fulfilment to the process’. 
— Chiel Lubbers, biomaterials
