Jane McCann & Sirpa Mörsky - WoolWorks
Textiles & Clothing

Festival: 2022

We met through Erasmus exchange thirty years ago and have collaborated on design-led projects ever since. Our ‘Wool Works’ collection of functional, timeless and ageless design promotes the sustainable theme “less is more”. Influenced by both Finnish and Irish nature and landscape, present in our colours, textures and forms, our background research also looks at the traditional cutting, making, materials and embellishment of Finnish national costume as well as the spinning of woolen yarns, in Finland and Ireland for knitwear and cloth. Our collaborative twelve piece collection is constituted from traditional Irish tweed, Sirpa’s hand woven cloth and Jane’s knitwear.
