Máíre Ní Thaidhg, weaver

Originally from Limerick. I have been working as a handweaver in Spiddal Craft Center since it’s beginning over 30 years ago.

Being surrounded by so much beauty where I live I’m inspired to try and capture it through the medium of my loom.

What keeps me most in love with weaving is the endless possibility it provides for using colours.

Using a variety of natural yarns, including wool, cotton and cotton-linen I weave my individually designed scarves, stoles, wraps and throws.

I also weave a rugs and wall-hangings, basing my designs on the surrounding landscape and seascape. I combine the traditional and contemporary, reflecting the natural beauty and vibrant colours of Connemara.
