Charlie Mallon has reintroduced flax to his farm in Co. Tyrone. Flax is a plant steeped in history, a natural fibre that reaches far back into the past but looks to the future with confidence. A long term plan, the farm will slowly turn to a seven year rotation of potatoes, flax, oats and grass.  Restoring the soil, protecting the water, supporting wildlife.

From an early age Lorna Shannon was encouraged to use her hands, to create with cloth and yarn. It was almost inevitable that she should become a spinner and a weaver. Years later she swapped the fells of the Pennines for the Antrim hills where she found inspiration in the Irish landscape, language and heritage. Lorna found a home nestled in the landscape of thorn trees and set up her workshop in a room with many windows.
