Abstract

This collaborative exhibition celebrates craft and design practice based on the past, current and future landscape of Irish Linen. Twenty textile-oriented practitioners have been linked, through their Celtic roots between Northern Ireland and South Wales by the curator Jane McCann to embrace both past heritage and modern style. Prototypes have been created through the sharing of novel approaches to techniques that include felt-making, embroidery, weaving and digital finishes. Designer markers have been supported by both local and international industry. Concepts produced offer the potential to inform the production of new commercial products.
