Kim profile

Kim Thittichai

I am a textile tutor, author and artist based on the West Coast of County Clare in Ireland. I find I am drawn to experiment, layering techniques where I can. My original training was in Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics. I had no idea that it would be instrumental in my development as a textile artist and tutor. We were trained as artist craft persons, learning how to use each material before we designed anything. Little did I know how important this would be forty years down the line. My teaching and 4 books - Hot Textiles, Experimental Textiles, Layered Textiles and Reclaimed Textiles, encourage students and readers to think outside the box – to discover ‘What if?’ I love to develop new surfaces to stitch into, working with heat fusible, bondable and distressable materials. Online teaching is a new venture. We will aim to build a full curriculum of workshops from a one day workshop to longer courses that will stretch the students.
