Hello! Welcome to my Folksy Shop, where you will find textile wall hangings, decorations and more...
This is a hand hooked wall decoration, made as a caricature of a certain politician.
The process begins with lots of drawings, designing the cartoon-like image that will act as the template for the hooked textile.
Then different colour palettes are explored, and repurposed materials are sourced (the tweed 'hair' seemed appropriate!), laundered and prepared. The hooking is carried out, then embellishments added, before the piece is backed with mount board and a felt backing, edging, with label and hanging loop.
The piece measures approximately:-
39 cm high x 21 cm wide
15 & 1/2 inches high x 8 inches wide
The 'work in progress' photograph (no 5) shows the piece under yellowish electric light, before the work was finished.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
Cleaning suggestions:- this piece is not washable, but may be spot cleaned, if necessary, and dusted with a hand held vacuum cleaner nozzle with a piece of net or a sieve placed over the end to protect the textile.
I have a second, smaller piece called 'Trump', a 'Johnston', and a 'May'. Please contact me if you are interested!
I have long had an interest in masks, and wanted to make a wall hung artwork based on them, but with a topical twist.
