Get Involved: Screen Printing With Clover Rua

Visit SÓ COLLECTIVE at Kildare Village this Saturday for a CRAFTY way to spend your WEEKEND

Clover Rua Print Bridges at So Collective Kildare Village

 

Inspired by iconic Irish architectural outlines, the prints of Clover Rua celebrate structures of Ireland – bridges, Georgian doors and pubs are depicted in an illustrative, colourful fashion across cards, prints and cushion covers – and their take on the classic Irish teatowel is particularly loved by both style-savvy tourists and homebirds alike. A partnership between Anita, a textile designer and Martin, a graphic designer, Clover Rua is only approaching its fourth birthday this year, but already has somewhat of a cult following – and next week sees an exciting opportunity to see how the two produce their beautiful work.

Although they normally work from their Dublin studio (with a seamstress in Wicklow), pop this weekend in the diary, as they will be setting up in Só Collective at Kildare Village as part of the ‘From The Maker’ series. From 2-4pm on March 25, they will demonstrate their creative process; maybe most exciting is that guests in attendance will get to try their own hand at screen printing, to produce a piece to then take home.

Can’t wait that long? Get a taste for their range on Etsy; we have our eye on their newest motif – the Burren wreath, depicting a range of its flora including bog thistle, violets and juniper berries, all taken from hand-drawn studies by the Clover Rua team.
