September 2015: Three grasses triptych

This beautiful textile hanging displays the art of indigo dyeing using a shibori technique, which involves stitching, binding wrapping and folding fabrics in order to control the end design.

Annabel Wilson, the artist behind the 'Natures Images' exhibition, is an expert in this technique. She has included several textile hangings within the exhibition, which is currently on display in the Ian Johnson Suite.

Three grasses triptych is available for purchase via B P Collins LLP, priced at £475. For more information, email
