Yorkshire view, Felt landscape, Unframed artwork approx 29cm (H) x 30cm (W)

Yorkshire view in Masham North Yorkshire.

MEDIUM An original felt art landscape, made from merino wool and other fibres.
TITLE “When It Rains Look For Rainbows” Masham, Yorkshire.

This Yorkshire view overlooks Leighton Reservoir. We had a lovely day out here as a family exploring the temple and local countryside. Inspired by a visit to the Druids Temple near Masham in North Yorkshire and rainy autumnal days.

I was very excited when I saw this view as it was so colourful with all the autumnal foliage. I do love autumn and rainbows, and a lovely Yorkshire view.

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 as seen then posted out ready for you to take to a framer to choose the frame.
