Description

A crochet depiction of the River Medway under the M2 bridge looking towards Rochester marina in Kent.

This 32x32cm crochet art piece is an experimental technique, using textured yarns, beads & embellishments alongside the technique of thread painting to create an artistic impression of a landscape view.
Other techniques used are surface crochet, needle felting, embroidery and beading.

This wall hanging is totally unique and a one of a kind. No two representations would ever be the same as no pattern is used, just a photograph (included below) and a rough background coloured drawing.

The crochet piece is hung on a 40cm wooden dowel with a crocheted hanging thread and weighted with 3 rocks in macrame knots to keep the work as flat as possible.

The wall hanging as a whole weighs 300g and the cost of postage reflects that.

Inspiration

In my spare time I like to go geocaching with my partner and that's where the inspiration behind this piece starts.

The photograph is a view towards Rochester, Kent from the site of a geocache that we had just found during early spring.

Fast forward about 6 weeks: I had gone to stay with my good friend and crochet design mentor, Helen (Rainbow Valley Crochet) to help her out with a weekend workshop.

The workshop was called Art Crochet, and we were teaching the techniques used to create thread paintings, using textured yarns to create impressionistic images, beading, embroidery and felting. All of which can be used together (or not) to create a very unique and personalised piece of art crochet.

It was a pleasure to work in this style, totally out of my comfort zone of following patterns and so unlike free form crochet.
