“Moorland Stag”, North Yorkshire

Last summer, I set out to experience the vast open landscape of the Yorkshire Moors while the heather was in full bloom. I drove through miles of vibrant purple heather, stopping along the way to capture photos of the stunning scenery.

The narrow road, flanked by heather on both sides, was incredibly quiet, with barely another soul in sight for miles around. It was a truly beautiful and serene scene, and I wanted to celebrate it with this felt artwork featuring a majestic moorland stag resting among the blooming heather.

The Process:-

Drawing on my degree in Fine Art, I use 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.
