Once again, felting my way.

May 11, 2016

Another project has been a long ride, time wise.

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.

More photos coming soon!
