Exhibition ‘A Woollen Winter’ Felt works by Louise Fleck & Themed Pieces from our Collection
Louise Fleck’s woollen works of art are inspired by the ‘wildness, dramatic and unspoilt beauty of Ireland’s landscape’. Using a wet-felting technique, Louise creates her country and coastal scenes using sheep wool fleece and other natural fibres.
An eclectic selection of museum artefacts complements the woollen winter theme. Bringing back memories of the ‘Big Snow of 1947’, the ceramic hot water bottles, ‘Fermanagh’ blankets and knitted woollen socks recreate traditional methods of keeping comfortable and warm.
