Linen Futures

18 July to 15 August 2015

Linen Futures, curated by Jane McCann

Opening reception Saturday 1 August


This collaborative exhibition celebrates craft and design practice based on the past, current and future landscape of Irish linen. Ten local textile-oriented practitioners and ten Celtic neighbours in Wales embraced past heritage and modern style, developing novel techniques and customization including felt making, embroidery, natural dying and digital finishes.

Linen Futures aims to communicate the value of textiles, eroded through globalization, by encouraging design that emphasizes longevity, durability and the timeless quality of linen. Collaborative practice will foster the design and making of products that demonstrate potential for the future production of multiples.
