Meadow in June is a wet felted wall art. It was inspired by a walk in the meadow yesterday and I was struck by the diversity of life there. From a distance it just looked green but when I was amongst the grasses there was a whole mini eco system there. Ragged robin,red clover,water forget me knots and the street urchin of the flower world - the buttercup were just a few of the flowers I saw.As soon as I came in I had to try to make a representation of it.
I first picked the correct type of colours whilst they were still fresh in my mind and then began to loosly needle felt the background in to place. I then added yarns to represent grasses and flower stalks. These were carefully trapped under gossamer threads of woollen fibres. The flowers were also needle felted on and then the whole picture was wet felted to make a strong fabric. When the felt was dry I added a little hand embroidery for further texture and detail. Finally I stretched the picture on to an artists canvas ready to hang on your wall.

Frequently asked questions about SueForeyfibreart

I am often asked how to keep an unframed felt dust free. It is very simple all you need to do is take it outside occasionally and bang it againt your hand. Should anything get splashed on to your felt whilst it is hanging a damp cloth or sponge can be used with no adverse effects at all. Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
If you have a special place that you would like me to make a felt of I am happy to do so. In the past I have made felts of peoples houses, favourite walks and even a beach where someone was proposed to. Please contact me to discuss your wishes.
