Forest Weaver

The Forest Weaver, a.k.a. the Dark-backed Weaver, is a metaphor for the work we do at Ferncliffe. It weaves a nest from tendrils and fine vines  — a little like weaving an ecosystem back together. Connor has always been fascinated by Persian patterns which contain floral tendrils in their arabesques.


Connor Cullinan is a fine artist with many solo and group shows to his name. He is producing a series of original prints to help Ferncliffe raise funds for its restoration work. The images are based on fauna and flora that can be found in the forest and on its fringes. The images are open editions*. The first three prints in the ongoing series are of vervet monkeys, a porcupine and a forest weaver, and they are produced at Black River Studio in Cape Town, South Africa.

*An open edition print means an unlimited number of prints of the same artwork is sold.

If your order is urgent, please contact us first to see if we’ll be able to deliver on time.

Prints will be sent by courier. We post once a week, however, so please expect the order to take longer than a standard delivery — or contact us to make a plan.

Prints will be packaged flat, sandwiched between stiff cardboard to keep them safe.

No, sorry. Becoming the owner of an artist’s print in exchange for a payment is not considered a donation by the South African Revenue Service.

All prints are A4.
