Letting go with Wild Atlantic Weaves

This weave, entitled ‘Letting Go’ speaks to those times in our lives when it’s time to let go.

Yes there is an ending, a sense of timing where our structures and lives begin to dissolve, suggesting a change in energy. We begin to look around, seeing and feeling what might be next. Yet in the search of the new, we cannot rush our goodbye. Even if we are removed with great speed from one place, part of us remains there for much longer.

And with every goodbye, there is a new beginning. A start of some place new. As excitement, a potential, hope even.

In this piece I explore these mix of emotions with care and consideration, choosing stitch, rhythm and colour as one life fades and another begins.

Each of my weaving wall hanging is a uniquely crafted hand built piece made on a circular loom and woven with native and upcycled wool. It is framed with sustainably sourced wood.

I have crafted my own unique process of making that is embedded in the land around me, here at the Old Head of Kinsale. I gather found natural objects along the shoreline on Garrylucas Beach, near Kinsale, bringing them home and placing them on my altar of creation. Over time, the wools and found object infuse together, I make and then dowse the pieces in local plant essences.

This is a once off, intuitively crafted weave that will not be replicated as I work without a pattern or a plan!

For this piece, I intuitively chose Angelica and Mugwort natural plant essences. With Angelica touching on angelic energies and a connection to higher self, and mugwort suggesting relationships built on inter dependence rather than co dependence, I see this piece evolving into a story of bravery, confidence and connection as we move into a new phase of our lives.

Allow this piece to guide you back to yourself.
