Striped Textile Wall Hanging - Lots of texture, in Blues, Orange, Dark Red and Pink - prodded technique
Striped Textile Wall Hanging, made using the prodded, rag rug technique.
The colour palette for this piece was derived from the colours of peeling layers of paint seen on a wall.
Availability: only one available.
The technique used is 'prodding', which is a method traditionally used for making rugs. A mixture of re-purposed fabrics are transformed into a colourful, textured artwork.
The approximate measurements (measuring to the extremities) are:-
Height 26 & 1/2 inches (67 cm)
Width 20 & 3/4 inches (53 cm)
The piece comes with drilled wooden lathes on the reverse, which may be screwed to the wall for a permanent fixing, or (as shown in the photographs), a string may be tied to the holes to hang the piece from a hook. (Please note that screws/cord are not included - however, the drilled wooden slats with velcro attachments are included).
Care Guide: - the piece may be vacuumed with a hand attachment with net held over the nozzle; or it can be shaken/beaten with a carpet beater outside. Spot clean any marks. Please note that loose threads are a feature of this technique.
The colours seen in the above images may vary from device to device, but are hopefully close to those in the wall hanging. The piece may be hung with either of the short ends at the top. I have included a shot that shows a Christmas tree, cat and chair to give an idea of the size (props are not included!) The final photo shows the piece from reverse and front in different lighting.

This piece is heavy, so I have not included shipping for outside the UK, however, if you are interested, I can obtain a courier quotation. Within the UK it will be sent by courier, taking 3 - 5 working days to arrive, after despatch.
