A Coastal Walk

Inspired by early summer days walking on the coastal path, the buttercups and cow parsley swaying gently in the breeze, days like these do not get much better!

Handmade felt using the wet felting technique from Merino wool and silk fibres. 

This work has not been finished with embroidery, sometimes less is more! I liked the flow of the fibres on this piece and the simplicity,  wet felting often reveals elements of surprise, so I adapt my design ideas accordingly.  

The work comes in a professional bare faced oak frame. The complimentary natural frame has been not been waxed or varnished so the true grain of the wood shows through complimenting the natural wool.  These frames are of a high quality. The picture is ready to hang.

Frame overall measurements: 37.5 x 19.5 cm

Actual work measurements:  29 x 10.5 cm 

An authentication label which I have signed along with description and methodology  is included.



21.12.2020 UPDATE

Due to the Covid-19 epidemic there are unprecedented backlogs both in the UK & North American postal systems. Currently goods are taking up to 4 weeks to arrive, this is on the quoted (Fastest Royal Mail) service.

I am more than happy to accept your order but i will not be dispatching new orders until week commencing 4th January, when perhaps the backlogs may have shortened. There are limited numbers of international flights due to the epidemic. So the goods are waiting over a week for flights out of the UK and internal flights in North America seem to be taking just as long. 

Please email me, to discuss your delivery requirements. 


UK deliveries are sent out using Royal Mail signed for service. 

Deliveries to Europe, USA, Canada and Australia typically take 7-14 working days(** see above). This is the fastest  most economical way to ship to you. Please note deliveries to USA are taking longer than usual due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation.  For other destinations please contact me so I can obtain a shipping price for you. 

For multiple items please contact me directly as I can combine the postage costs. Please email me if you are a local customer and would like to collect in person to save the delivery cost. Please note I now live in North Yorkshire!

I aim to dispatch pictures the next working day, using the Post Office. I will let you know once dispatched. 

If you would like to purchase more than one picture, please contact me first so I can calculate the most economical method of shipping for you.
