It has been a busy few months getting pieces together for two exhibitions, one for the RDS National Craft Competition and the Feltmakers Ireland exhibition in the Botanic Gardens.

The Peacock

Feltmakers Ireland

Woodland Clearing

RDS Craft Competition

Both pieces are a format that I have been thinking about for a while, but nothing like a submissions deadline to force the move from idea to reality.

The concept is to break an image into a series of components sections, separated by space to allow light to pass through and create shadows, which will give depth to the piece.

That was the theory, realising it was a challenge. Having made the felt picture, question arose, like: How many cuts and where?; How do I mount it onto the netting?; Will it work?
