Description

The Bioladies Network and the Natural Materials Association would like to invite you to an exciting evening celebrating the launch of "Designing with Natural Materials".

The event is focussed on bringing together the entire community surrounding natural materials production, investigation, innovation and use, from artists to scientists, start-ups to policy makers.

We will begin with a few talks from experts in their field to set the scene and introduce you to the topics of the book; then we will take a quick look at recent strategies that impact natural materials and then it is over to drinks and networking.
