    "Her green stained fingers
    Bloody.
    Bog-down and eider
    a map scattered to the winds
    Threads in forty shades
    hours of silence
    and sisters always wait behind"
    The twelve Wild Geese Siobhan Rodgers 2011 (Text for the piece)

    Inspiration line for The Twelve Wild Geese, I don’t think I can stop until I’ve made each brother a jacket… hours of weaving, dancing circles barefoot, that summer smell of cut grass and rain, and it smells of freedom, life on the wing…

    Upcoming show…

    This piece of work (pictured here in earlier shows) has been selected for a local mueasums exhibition of the best craft in the county in celebration of August Craft Month… More information to follow. It is my retelling of “The Twelve Wild Geese” an Irish version of a fairytale, and is woven from rushes, twine and bog-cotton.

    Setting up for the show in PS2…

    It’s taken me two days to set up in the space, between painting the writing onto the the walls and pinning each rush individually… But it’s nearly there, red threads and red trails, red ribbons and red velvet, white snow, white bog-cotton and white linen and green as green as this land…

    Rushes: 100+, Pins: the same, Hours to pin each rush individually to the wall: 6, A cup of tea: Priceless…
