Fay McCaul


A graduate of the Textiles MA programme at the Royal College of Art London, McCaul established her own studio in 2012, where she has explored the use of modern materials combined with traditional methodology to create contemporary textiles which incorporate integral lighting effects. Initially working with traditional knitting techniques, McCaul’s more recent work has explored the potential of heat bonding processes to combine diverse materials and sublimation printing to produce luxury textile surfaces for use for wall-coverings, partitions and installations. In 2013, McCaul was selected to take part in the Crafts Council Hothouse Programme, a mentoring and development programme for makers over a period of 6 months.

Fay McCaul was selected as the first Designer-in-Residence at Tashkeel in 2017.
