In 2017/18 we are collating new data and partnerships for the next stages of the project – the next phase requires collaboration for a large scale trial in a city. There is therefore no current activity of the project in the public domain, other than for exhibition purposes.

Dec 2013 to Jan 2015: Field of Jeans inspires Catalytic Learning - an educational project for students and teachers

A long project with Thomas Tallis school-50 Jeans were planted in a grassy space next to the main road outside the school. This unusual prompt kick started a teacher inset day, where ideas for a Catalytic Learning Day, held in April 2014 took inspiration from Catalytic Clothing itself and this Field of Jeans . A day of projects based learning took place, involving Years 7 to 11 and across the curriculum. Film link https://vimeo.com/90874903
