The Woollen Woods

My loom knitted owl

A while ago my textiles group at The Heathlands Project and I took part in one of Eden Arts's Projects called FLOCK. They're now running another project in support of the Campaign for Wool project which we're also getting involved in. It's called Canopy and one element of it is the Woollen Woods; an installation that anyone can get involved with by making creatures from woolen materials to be displayed in the trees.

So, we've been busy knitting, loom knitting, felting and pom-pom making to create a veritable menagerie of creatures to send to the Woollen Woods.
