At last the NEW COLLECTION of Merino Needle Artworks are here!
These little beauties are all framed and are now available to purchase on the website. So here goes to let you know a little more about them.
As you may have seen from previous blogs and social media I have been busy working on some needle Art creations for the last few months. Most of the artworks have been handcrafted in the various locations mentioned with a few worked from photographs that I've taken. Here are some close ups to give you a better idea of what they look like.
So what are the Artworks made of and how big are they?
Each picture is handcrafted using a backing of wool felt, various sizes of giant felting needles and un-spun Merino wool.
The actual images are all approx 10cm x 10cm
The overall frame sizes are approx 18cm x 18cm (£28) or 21cm x 21cm (£32) (Free P&P)
So why Merino Artwork for Dunnknit Designs?
Merino Artworks have always been on the cards for Dunnknit Designs from the very beginning and at last I have had the opportunity over the last few months to combine my Fine Art and Textile experience to create these unique pieces.
No two pictures are the same! Each Artwork is 'one of a kind' and will not be re-created.
This is an exciting time for Dunnknit Designs and although I have worked with this method of needle art for many years, the time has eventually come for me to share this old fashioned skill that isn't often seen these days.
I love to work outside where possible but often work from photographs that either I've taken on my travels or my amazing photographer family members have taken. I'm also lucky to have a few contacts who kindly send me such beautiful photos and I've worked on a few commission landscapes too. The possibilites are endless!
As always, a big thank you for listening and I hope you love this New Collection of Merino Needle Artworks as much as I do!
Until next time,
