Fashion: Learn your stripes
We've always loved the motif motivation provided by Patternity, the "pattern consultancy" whose picture blog is a thing of fashion-world renown. And now design duo Anna Murray and Grace Winteringham are forging further connections with Pattern Power, a series of talks and events exploring pattern in all its guises. This year's inaugural jamboree focuses on stripes, and includes everything from science lectures to stripey-jelly-making classes. 6 to 21 April, London Newcastle Project Space, London E2, patternpower.eventbrite.co.uk
