“Newton Under Roseberry”

We decided to visit Roseberry Topping  and parked on the roadside at Newton Under Roseberry. As we walked towards The National Trust car park we looked across to Roseberry Topping and saw this view of this iconic Yorkshire mountain.

From the National Trust car park we made our way up to the top of Roseberry Topping. My husbands parents live nearby and he had climbed it as a child many times so it had lovely childhood memories for him. And now climbing it with his own children.

It was a tough and thirsty climb up to the top and we were well ready for our picnic. We sat on the top of Roseberry Topping and looked out over the rolling hills of Yorkshire. A spectacular view and well worth the climb up.

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.
