Hirst Wood threads

This afternoon I took some of my work to Hirst Wood to experiment with it in the environment. I wound some yarn between three trees in a really open area of beech trees. I enjoyed the action - spilling thread off the cone; wrapping and winding; moving around the space and taking the yarn under, over and around.

Hanging the fabrics and photographs I found that these small pieces were most effective grouped closely together.



  1. fascinating to wrap yarn around like that.. and the spider webs look like the textures in your textile fabrics.

  2. hi Hannah a thought came into my head - the hangings reminded me of my trip to Nepal years ago and the prayer flags they place over bridges etc, really lovely. Looked like fun.

  3. Some great comments - thanks! The idea of prayer flags is really interesting; it might be interesting to make some flags and leave them in place to weather.

  4. Greetings from America ~ this is my first visit to your blog and I must tell you, I have so enjoyed having a look around! I'm leaving a comment on this post because I am so inspired by what you did here in the woods. Your beautiful textiles look amazing in this context...
