Irish felt painting “After The Rain”.

We’d been on a long walk around Kylemore Abbey in the pouring rain. Luckily we’d bought fantastic rain hats and waterproofs. As Alfred Wainwright once said “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing”. The rain fell heavy that day.

As we drove to our next location to explore more of Irelands beautiful scenic landscapes. We saw this view and just had to stop to admire it. The majestic mountains, gleaming in the sunshine after the rain.

The Process

Drawing on my degree in Fine Art, I use merino wool in lots of different colours (as you would tubes of paint) and lay out the loose fibres of different coloured wool onto my base (as you would paint on canvas).

Once finished the next stage is to make these loose fibres of wool stick together using the ‘wet felting’ technique to make the wool painting into a piece of felt. You do this by adding hot soapy water and friction. The hot water opens up the wools scales and the friction (rubbing/rolling) binds them together. During this process the wool shrinks by about 15-20% and you end up with one piece of felt material.

Once the felted picture is dry I needle felt into the piece to sharpen some of the details.

The final felt art is attached to a piece of acid free mount board and mounted as seen then posted out ready for you to take to a framer to choose the frame.
