‘Ó’ means ‘from’ in Irish and the exhibition will bring together a diverse range of designers and makers from Ireland. In our pop-up atelier, we will recreate our rural Northern Irish workshop giving visitors the opportunity to watch us weaving live.
Master weaver Karen and her apprentices will throw shuttles across the loom. Each day they’ll weave a different design from our new Monochrome Range. Shaggy Dog, Mended Tweed and Tweed Emphasize are all heritage fabrics first designed by Gerd Hay-Edie in the 1950s.
Our fresh designs for this season will be showcased at Tent. We’ll be located in Hall G5 on the Ground Floor and welcome you to come by for a chat, and to learn more about traditional weaving techniques and the provenance of our yarns.
Mourne Textiles fabric will also be displayed on a set of Robin Day Centenary chairs - dotted about the festival as part of the Day in London series of exhibitions. The chairs will also be at the V&A Museum exhibition Robin Day Works in Wood.
