Needle Felting

My latest needle felted piece is based on a photo I took a few years ago near Hightown, Merseyside. It's where the River Alt estuary meets the sea along the Sefton coast. I played around with the photo a little:


I started out making a wet felted background to work on:


Then needle felted it with Merino mixed with texturey wools like Icelandic. I used a bit of silk and bamboo on the river and cotton fibre for the clouds.

  1. Hello Zed, your wet/needle Felted landscape turned out fantastic. The needle felting gave the landscape lots of texture. The river came alive. Love it.
