Time well spent

  • • Terry combines ancient technique and modern design
  • • His pieces are inspired by local nature
  • • Materials and technique guide his process

Terry Dune’s weaving studio is located in Wexford set back from the sea front, a peaceful location situated between Kilmore Quay and Bannow Bay. The perfect location to spend days lost in creating his intricate tapestry pieces. Steeped in this environment, it is small wonder that Terry draws much of his inspiration from the natural world. His pieces bring together traditional skills and contemporary design resulting in stunning one-off works of art. He compares his process to that of a painter, translating his drawings and sketches into fibre; he uses threads rather than brushes. Terry has been exhibiting nationally and internationally since graduating from Dunlaoghaire College of art in 1980.
