Lara Pain

Student Representative

Having recently graduated with a BA Honours First Class degree in Textile Design, Lara has previous experience as a student representative and ambassador for her university’s textile course. Following her graduation Lara was awarded the 2022 Clothworker’s Award at Cockpit Studios where her current weaving practice is now based.

“I was awarded a Textile Society student bursary in 2022 which supported my final project. Consequently, I recognise the role of the Society in supporting students in the broad field of textile study and their subsequent professional development.”
