Once again, felting my way.

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!

    This looks like a huge challenge. The sample piece looks very detailed and intricate.

    Thanks for commenting Jennifer. Huge it was, dominating most of my time for solid weeks. Lots of detail through use of colour and textural stitch. I can see birds in flight in the large piece. Having a break from felting now!
