“Lindisfarne Sea View”

We love Northumberland and have been many times in recent years. We always go to Holy Island for a little wonder around. The last time we went we got tickets to go into Lindisfarne Castle. It’s a great place to visit – full of history and fantastic views all around the island. We learnt there is also a walled garden on the island – apparently often missed by visitors (including us on previous visits). So this time around we also visited the walled garden. As it was the summer holidays the garden was bursting with colour and in full bloom. Very inspirational.

This is the view approaching Lindisfarne Castle where you can also see Bamburgh Castle in the distance on the mainland. Northumberland has many magical places – this being one of them. And now so many memories we have of happy times spent here.

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 and framed as seen. Click here to read more about the process.
