Towards the Wolds…..

This is my latest commissioned piece entitled Towards the Wolds. It’s based on one of my favourite views looking east down Shearmans Wath, towards West Ashby and the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Shearman’s Wath is the site of a late Neolithic Henge. According to Historic England…..”the buried remains are situated 330m north of Thimbleby Mill on the glacial sands and gravels of the flood plain edge, some 150m east of the River Bain. The monument, which has been reduced by ploughing, can no longer be seen on the ground. It is, however, clearly visible from the air, and has been recorded on aerial photographs since 1970.”

The Wallhanging is approximately 42cm x 64 cm, created from 23 micron Merino fibres, Wet Felted, and embellished with hand and machine stitch. I’ve enjoyed working on this piece and very much looking forward to seeing it hanging in it’s new home!

  2. Beautiful layering of colours. When I’ve done pieces like this they have surprisingly been mostly sold to men. I wonder if it’s because they don’t give off the ‘stitchy’ feel straight away.

  3. Gorgeous! I agree with Lyn about the perspective, it’s wonderful and draws you right into the piece. The stitching also adds just the right touch. I am sure it will be treasured!

  4. It’s a beautiful landscape Karen! The colours really catch the season and anyone would feel that they could just walk down that lane – the perspective is spot on.

    • Thanks Lyn. I usually prefer to work in 3D, rather than 2D, when I’m Felting but thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of recreating the colours and the perspective for this picture.
