This felted and eco printed wall hanging was made in 2019 and exhibited in Finland and Ireland as part of a joint show between Feltmakers Ireland and the Finnish Felting Association. It marries my passions for wet felting, silviculture, eco printing and working with natural materials. I feel that it encapsulates my current textile practice, simple, natural and crafted.
The wall hanging is reversible and washable. The leaves that I used to print it piece were all selected from trees growing behind the house at Clasheen; this side is Euca. parvifolia and the reverse is mixed eucalypts.
