About

Woven Woods: A journey through the Forest Floor is a collection of twelve round fabric wall hangings that interpret the fascinating system of tree root communication facilitated by forest fungi. The research for this project was inspired by the work of Dr. Suzanne Simard of UBC, a leader in the field of forest biology, who generously gave of her time and knowledge.

The wall hangings are composed of fabrics of all kinds such as dyed and printed cottons, some silks, a variety of synthetics and sheers, and cotton batting. They are all raw edge machine appliqued and quilted.
Lorraine Roy has a BSc in Agriculture, majoring in Horticulture. She has been a full time professional artist working with textiles for over 30 years. In her work she focuses on trees and the myriad connections they have with each other and with other organisms and humans. She lives and works in Dundas, Ontario.
The collection will tour until 2022.
