Multi layered unique folklore wall art, celebrating Lammas. Also known as Lughnasadh, this is the first harvest, on the first of August. Each one-off screenprint is built up of several individual layers, starting with flat blocks of bright colour. I also paint directly on to a blank silkscreen, pulling the ink through to create textures and a sense of movement. I love to push the boundaries of what screenprinting can be. This unique folklore wall art will bring the warm colours of Lammas into your home.
The collection is called Almanac as a nod to the traditional calendars of the year. They were used to check moon phases and other important dates and celebrations throughout the year. Lammas is a key date in the Wheel of the Year, celebrating the first harvest, with a focus on grain and seed.
