The final reveal. Do I like it? Yes and no. I’m very pleased with the number of processes that it incorporates and the learning journey I experienced to create it. The design is unsophisticated but given this was all about the process that shouldn’t be a surprise.
To sum up:
Wool used – Blue Faced Leicester, Dorset Horn, Jacob, Whitefaced Woodland.
Processes used – spinning, weaving, felt making, printing and stitching.
Unsurprisingly my title for this piece is ‘Wool’ and you’ll be able to see it on display at Armley Mills from 14/4 to 22/10. The exhibition is called “Wool Stories – The Felted Mill” and will feature work from more than twenty felt makers. Remember the printed wallpaper block? I’ll tell you next what happened to that.
