Tutor Pasha Kincaid 

Experiment with printing textures from a wide range of fabrics. Using knitting, fine crochet, ribbons, weaving, jute, string, lace, and netting, we will make beautiful, delicate, and fierce embossed monoprints. Pasha will provide a selection of textile-based items suitable for printing from or feel free to bring your own – depth no more than about 3mm, unfortunately the presses won’t take Aran! These will get inked so don’t bring anything too precious.
