  • 2nd April is World Autism Day which was designated by the United Nations as a day for organisations around the world to come together to raise awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with autism. This could be a useful starting point for a design context, whether it be as a quick starter activity or discussion, or as part of a bigger design activity. In particular it may be useful to consider the fact that the UN emphasises the inclusion and development of those with disabilities in many of their 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development as part of their ‘leaving no one behind’ vision and they have a useful free to download infographic, as well as a section on the UN website about World Autism Day  (use the menu bar at the top of the page for more info). The National Autistic Society website might be a useful website for finding out more about designing for people with autism .
  • The Ritdye website has some useful easy to follow instructions and videos on dyeing textiles fabrics, including shibori, ombre, marble dyeing and more. The instructions are aimed at their own brand of dye but others can be used.
