My ongoing collaboration with Alison Ospina since lockdown began early in 2020 has been very rewarding. Alison creates beautiful green wood furniture and this stripped and polished hazel armchair is a glimpse at what we have been up to.
It’s titled ‘Allium’ and along with the ottoman below was on display at the National Design & Craft Gallery in Kilkenny from 22nd October – 30th January 2022 as part of the Made in Ireland exhibition. The wool is eco printed with onion skins and the wood is hazel, some stripped and some not; the upholstery is by Jesica Finken. If you are interested in learning how to eco print your own fabric or would like to wet felt, why not check out my YouTube channel for tips, tutorials and free bootcamps?
