Intertidal Felt Piece

4' x 2' felt piece, Merino wool, silk, yarn, and 3-D pieces, seamless felt filled with wool.
Last year I was asked to create a felt table piece for Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area and Haida Heritage Site. The felt piece is used at their outreach booth to attract visitors, to invite and to engage them with the three dimensional pieces. Felt is so tactile, it just begs to be touched, so it is the perfect medium for an engaging piece of art. I had lots of fun making all the different pieces. Thanks to Stephanie and her team for the opportunity!
