Emma Duhig

 The pandemic has altered everything. One such change is for people to take their holidays in the UK. It was all too commonplace to jump on a cheap flight and go somewhere sunny. However, Emma Duhig has embraced nature found at the seaside in her recent works. She wanted to capture the beauty of the British coast with a focus on textiles for home interiors after spending so much time inside during the three lockdowns. Her project uses natural colour, materials and motifs that intertwine biophilic design principles, and create materials that are aesthetically pleasing but also that have health benefits. Sustainability is at the heart of Duhig’s craft, realised through using fabric and screen printing onto wood.
