Fabric of the land
Produced by filmmaker Paul Wyatt, watch the story behind the creation of Ella Doran’s exhibition ‘Sheep to Seat, Fleece to Floor’ for Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) and meet some of the key personalities involved in the journey.
Sheep to Seat, Fleece to Floor, by award-winning designer Ella Doran, follows the journey of wool from the sheep that graze the historic landscape of YSP – from shearing to scouring, spinning to weaving, and design to product development. As an homage to local products, suppliers and processes, the exhibition highlights the importance of the circular economy in reducing waste and sustaining livelihoods and traditions. It shines a light on one of the most versatile, sustainable, abundant and undervalued of the UK’s agricultural products: wool.
“Paul’s signature is all over “Fabric of the Land”. Anyone can dumb material down; very few like Paul can allow it to retain the essence of what makes it distinctive whilst making it comprehensible – the art of story-telling.”
