“Paddling At Robin Hoods Bay”

We arrived in Robin Hoods Bay on a not so sunny August day. Fearing the worst for the weather that day – it soon picked up. We felt so lucky to have a lovely day in such a beautiful place.

We had a lovely family day out and found the beach to be a special place to relax, walk and have a little paddle in the cool shallows.

We stood on the shore looking out to sea and listened to the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore – it gave us all a feeling of calm.

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.
