Bring the wonder of the Nordic outdoors into your home. This wall tapestry depicts branched birch trees on a colorful background. It will remind you of long walks in the woods, wind blowing through your hair, and the birds’ songs. The high contrast of black and white against the verdant landscape catches your eye. Your friends will be so impressed that you actually made this!
You will use wool roving, a barbed needle, and newly acquired poking skills to “paint with wool”. You’ll gain understanding about wool, a natural medium, and it’s ability to depict nature. Then you’ll learn how to needle felt the roving to create the background and trees.
The fabric canvas is up cycled from the mill ends at Pendleton, here in Oregon.
Felting is fun, and fun means everyone can complete this project. No prior felting experience is necessary. No artistic skills or talent are required. All tools and materials are included.
