Inspiring women with UWS

Wednesday 31st October, 2018

Check out these great pics from Tapestry of Renfrewshire – the latest in the University of the West of Scotland’s Inspiring Women lecture series.

This special event reflected the impact and input the weaving and mill industry had in Paisley, the women that were the hidden drivers behind the success of the industry and the connection it has to current engineering and computing methods.

With input from Paisley Museum, Glasgow Women’s Library, Renfrewshire Tapestry, Weaving Musical Threads and the university’s own School of Engineering and Computing – and a keynote speech from internationally-renowned textile artist and designer Jilli Blackwood – there certainly were plenty of inspiring women on hand!

The Inspiring Women lecture series forms part of the UWS commitment to staff and students alike to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in higher education and research.
