Henry Moore’s Sheep Sketchbook… woolgatherers

Loosely punched in Shetland wool fibres on to pre-felt and then wet felted and fulled.

Henry Moore made numerous sketches of his favourite subjects including sheep. He captures the character in simple lines which I wanted to translate into wool.

Felting or wet felting is just painting with wool. You can also draw with wool when you pull and twist thin drafts of wool fibre.

I run workshops on drawing, painting and felting aspects of the mid Devon countryside.
