A challenge was set….to make a LARGE wall hanging, as large as I could manage. This is the starting point, knowing that shrinkage occurs along the way. Five layers of fleece were carefully laid out as a wall hanging needs weight to hang well. It was a lot of physical work with a meditative tone.
Depicting an abstraction landscape theme, my piece was constructed using wet-felting & hand stitch techniques.
Stage 2 is shown above; with many more to follow.
The piece was so large that it took two of us to undertake the rolling required to bond the merino fleece; it was a ‘dance’ with my husband!
This lets you see a birds eye view of only a small part of the final piece.
