This little beauty is one of a collection of Merino Needle Artworks new to Dunnknit Designs.
It was handcrafted whilst tootling from Cheshire into North Wales on a narrow boat recently. I quickly took a photo of us crossing the Welsh border and then worked on the photo for this one! After all artworks take time!
What is it made of and how big is it?
Each picture is handcrafted using a backing of felt, various sizes of giant felting needles and of course Merino wool.
The actual image approx 10cm x 10cm
The overall frame size approx 18cm x 18cm
Frame is in White (FSC Certfified) and has both a hanging hook and stand.
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 are the same and although I have worked with this method of needle art for 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 so lucky to have a few contacts who kindly send me such beautiful photos and I've worked on a few commission landscapes too, so just let me know through the contacts page on the website if this is something you fancy doing. The possibilites are endless!
