This is a sailing boat hand crafted from driftwood and mounted on a wooden board. The boat has a single sail made from floral cotton fabric, embroidered with blue cross stitch. There are metal stays and nails,pins, buttons, shells and washi tape bunting added as decoration.
The background is sand yellow (old sewing pattern) with decorative crochet panel added behind the boat. There is also a strip of washi tape to represent the sea below the boat.
Width 30cm, height 34cm. Depth at maximum 8cm. (Measurements are of the wood panel - the boat mast overhangs this by 1cm at the top left corner.)
Fixings supplied but not attached.
British holidays by the sea have been frequent in my life and always include beach combing for treasure. I began making driftwood boats with my children using the treasure we had found. I love the way that individual pieces of driftwood decide the shape of the boat they become.
