“View from Malham Cove”

As we walked from the village to Malham Cove we could hear the sound of the stream gently trickling along side us as Malham Cove got closer and closer.

Once at Malham Cove we took the steps to the top which is where you can see this beautiful view of Malham Cove and the distant fields.

From here we went across the huge cracked stones at the top and down to Janets Foss waterfall. After a little paddle to cool down and rest we walked back to the village for tea and cake. It’s a lovely family day out with the kids.

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.
