I work part time in hospital arts, with patients facing life limiting illness. Sometimes I work with patients and their loved ones helping and encouraging them to make art but sometimes I get asked to make pieces for the hospital.
I was asked to create a new donations box for St Bede’s, it took a little while but it is now finished!
I wanted to create the mood of a beautiful garden and used needle felting, a process I often use with participants, embellished with hand and free machine embroidery. There’s a lot of French knots on there!
Hope you like it!
