Textile Designer and Artist
Hello, my name is Lucy O Brien, I'm a weaver and textile artist from Dublin, Ireland.
Weaving fascinates me and I love every stage of the process, from setting up the loom to weaving the fabric itself.
My designs are handwoven in Ireland with sustainability in mind. I only use plant based materials within my work. The traditional aspect of weaving has always interested me. Our ancestors made fabrics to last. If something got a hole, they mended it, they didn't bin it. We need to learn from them and bring these practises back into our own lives
Today our world is full of items that are not made with durable materials. I want people to cherish and keep my designs forever, therefore helping us all towards a more sustainable future!
