Bring joy to your world when you felt a vibrant wallhanging in beautiful merino wool tops embellished with silks and pencil yarn.
My huge tribal wallhangings and window-hangings have been acclaimed by people searching for a more meaningful and spiritual artistic expression for their inner hopes and feelings.
This project might take you several hours or even a day to accomplish, but working with these vibrant colours and being able to walk away and return to it afresh will be a transformative experience.
Instructions ( online illustrated step by step ) will show you how to lay out and wet felt your wall hanging.
Uniquely, the kit contains a large piece of cotton scrim and a water soluble artfelt paper so you can draw your design before laying out the wool fibres.
The wallhanging can be extended and embellished by adding fringes, tassels and felted balls.
I'll show you different possibilities to help make your picture unique and special.
Alternatively, I can customise your favourite design and create a template and colour guide just for you. Just send me a photograph or description.
Additional tips on how to hang or display your work, too!

My son really enjoyed making the large rainbow project with me especially the bit with the water. We have had a lot of art projects to do re schoolwork and he has been drawing rainbows for the local shop windows, Fire station - Dad works there and for the elderly who don’t have young grandchildren. Thanks again.
Thanks for all your help with your step by step guide. The rainbow turned out better than I expected and Fraser really enjoyed making it, especially the bit with the water.
Will be attempting the felt soaps next, thanks for adding them in. Ruari is even going to give it a go.
Take care and stay safe.
What a wonderful surprise to open up this delightful package of colours! It came on a very dark day and I am keen to clear the decks and get started on my rainbow banner. Very good communication and patient advice from Judi - nothing was too much trouble.
The rainbow kits arrived yesterday and the wool colours are amazing! I can't wait to get started with my daughter as we've been isolating and wanted to try something creative and new. The instructions look very easy to follow and Judi was quick to respond, answer all questions and dispatch the item. Excellent service.
