An installation exploring plants on the move. Plants and trees made huge historic sailing journeys possible, and voyages around the globe led to the unprecedented movement of plants. In its production of flax twine, for the sail cloth industries, Dawe’s Twineworks played its part in this story.

At the beginning of the festival there will be a procession of Marcia’s works from OSR Projects to their final setting at Dawe’s Twineworks. The procession will set out at 10.30am. FREE – no need to book. 

Work by Marcia is also on show at OSR Projects, and she has organised a plant exchange and two drawing workshops. See events for booking details.


Marcia Teusink’s work explores climate change, collapsing environments and regrowth through painting, sculpture, video, printmaking and mixed media. Her recent projects look at the historical movement of plants – both the wonder of the range of plant species in the world and the problematic ecological effects of their unnatural redistribution.
