Historic Textile Printing at An Tir Collegium

This past weekend Ursel and I presented a talk about historic textile printing at An Tir Collegium. It was a new format for An Tir, with mostly lecture classes, which meant we didn’t do much hands on. But, we have a brand shiny new set of handouts full of additional research and pretty pictures of extant examples, found in this google docs folder:

The class went well, and it’s nice to have another format to teach it in. I have hopes that the collegium format takes off and becomes a fixture; the educational potential of this event is huge.
