Hand-printed Irish Linen Artwork and Willow Wall Hanging
Dimensions: 33cm width
Materials: Irish Linen, Willow, Linen thread, Leather cord, interfacing
Leaf print: Hazel- associations of wisdom, kingship, poetic inspiration, and mystical knowledge. It was thought to have protective powers.
Each piece in this collection has been made from heritage materials: Irish Willow, formed into hoops, and Irish Linen that features unique and individual hand-printed artwork.
Each piece has been created using processes drawn directly from the land and references the Old Irish Tree List, and our native woodlands, and our connection to the land. The processes used to make each hoop vary but include mark making using nature printing and eco-printing. Colour has been made using iron water and natural dyes extracted from tree bark, along with printing inks.
The Irish Linen has been backed with interfacing and stitched into the hoops using linen thread. Each hoop features a leather cord for hanging.
