The Ted Resource at Chelsea College of Art & Design was established in 2003 and forms the physical and intellectual focal point for TED. It is a unique collection of information about sustainable textile design. It consists of fabric and clothing samples, press cuttings, academic and student papers, research projects and case studies which are all available to students, designers and researchers. Through this resource we also: host team meetings; provide reading materials to student, graduates and professionals, host internal and external events; attend and report back on / document and archive, external research events; post weekly blogs for our website followers; provide audio, photographic and video resources; publish information / guidance sheets through the website.

Research Groups: TED - Textiles Environment Design
Rebecca can be described as a practice-based textile design researcher in that her research integrates designing both as a mode of investigation and communication of research outcomes. This practice component encompasses a wide range of design related activities. For example, she produces hand and digitally printed textiles for her own label, undertakes public art projects and commissions, and is an educator, facilitator and curator.
The Textiles Environment Design Project (TED)
TED is a research project involving design staff practitioners at Chelsea. Staff and students work collaboratively and on individual projects. This unique research cluster, established in 1996, seeks to 'explore the role that the designer can play in producing textiles that are more environmentally friendly'.
Through the TED Resource the project seeks to help students and SME's make more informed decisions. Starting points for research may be theory, process or materials. TED has developed a series of environmentally positive design strategies.
The Textiles Future Research Group (TFRG)
As Associate Director of TFRG Rebecca works towards extending TED's influence and opportunities to a broader group of designers and students.
Ever & Again: Rethinking Recycled Textiles is an AHRC funded three-year collaborative practice-based research project between textile staff practitioners at Chelsea.
