Curated by designer Jane McCann and textile artist Cecilia Stephens.

This exciting exhibition represents a unique collaboration between makers and practitioners from South Wales and Northern Ireland. Focusing on innovative approaches to celebrating Northern Ireland’s rich Irish linen heritage, the exhibition demonstrates a wide range of textile skills including print, weave, embroidery, natural dying and garment making.

The group will be joined by Sirpa Mörsky, from Finland, who is a highly skilled practitioner with a long history of engagement with flax, linen and all its processes.

The exhibition was opened by Duncan Clark of  WM Clark & Sons  which is the oldest surviving linen factory in Ireland.
