The Republic of Broken Dreams: the hosiers of Soar Island, Leicester.

Part 1 Project 2016

De Montfort University, UK
Through the contact between the young designers and the unemployed makers this project will help to reassemble what once was one of the most productive centres for hosiery in Europe. Through the use of the waterways, the new community creates a stable-mobile self-build settlement. The hosiers work together in order to design architecture and programmes which engage, support and inspire their craft skills in the making of Hosiery.
