The IMMA Collection is a unique resource which is made available to the public through a vibrant programme of temporary exhibitions and projects. Collection Exhibitions may explore the work of an individual artist, or address a theme or historic period.
In this project, we invite you to make your own bookmark based on the wool artwork of Elinor Wiltshire. First, take a look at this artwork from the IMMA Collection by Elinor Wiltshire: Kestrel over Motorway, near London.
Elinor Wiltshire was born in Limerick in 1918 and died in 2017. She took many remarkable photographs of Irish life throughout the 1950s and 1960s. She captured images of a changing city and the people who lived in it. Although she is best known for photography, she also created beautiful needlepoints and there are a number of these artworks in the IMMA Collection.
