Folded Forest is a creative partnership founded in 2016 by Ruth Viqueira and Sarah Peel. Together they design and make a range of limited edition prints and homewares, all screenprinted by hand in their small studio in Harden, West Yorkshire.
Designs begin as hand made paper-cuts, which are arrange into patterns or detailed scenes. Layers are added with pen, ink and tracing paper, then exposed onto fabric stretched screens ready for printing by hand. Screenprinting allows the artists to carefully choose and layer colours and to print onto all sorts of interesting surfaces, from beautiful handmade papers, to linen fabric to sturdy birch ply wood.
