A major exhibition uncovering the secret innovators at the heart of Scottish design.

Showcasing the work of 15 contemporary Scottish textile designers, SAMPLE aims to draw the focus to these usually anonymous innovators, with one of the largest exhibitions of printed textiles in recent years. Filling the whole of Gallery 1 at The Lighthouse, Scotland’s centre for design and architecture, with printed textiles and sculptural displays of large-scale fabrics in a huge, interactive exhibition featuring specially commissioned work around five key ‘trends’, SAMPLE shows off the versatility, vibrancy and too-often overlooked talent pool of Scottish textile design.
