Feeling good about the test samples I have hand felted, it felt right to start a large wall hanging. Here’s a sneak peak of some of my work before wet-felting and fulling took place.
Set-up to make the right table height was imperative to avoid neglecting my body. Laying out five layers of rovings took its toll and I felt the strain on my legs from hours and hours of standing.
Here’s a pic of of my foundation work for this piece.
It was then topped with coloured wool and silk rovings and yarns to loosely create a landscape image, based on Dungog’s hills and nature. The clocked ticked away!
It has been fully wet-felted and is now resting (me too) and drying out so that the next stage ….. stitching, can then be worked.
