design ideas


To Inspire you!!! In this you may find an image that moves you - run with it - a flock of swallows, a bird’s nest hat, a leaf unfurling, vineyards in Ireland... so much is happening because of climate change!

You can make any kind of garment or accessory (you can wear) that uses Irish wool and is inspired by climate change. Please feel free to be as creative as you like. Pieces will be added to the exhibit throughout the run of the show. You will have your work returned to you if you like. THANK YOU for begin part of the Carbon Footprint Project!!

Due to climate change in Ireland:

The swallows arrive 2 days earlier for every 1〫increase in temperature in March. Last year the swallows came 8 days earlier.

Harlequin Ladybird
New species of insects are moving into Ireland every year! Among them is this ladybird - a voracious but lovely pest that threatens the local Irish ladybird population.

Irish 2-spotted ladybird (making out).
There are 27 species of Irish ladybird beetles.
