Sketches In Wool
Hiort sets the imagination on fire; its spectacular natural landscape, its wildlife, ecology, history and cultural heritage are so extraordinary that it is all too easy to become overwhelmed. The aim of this project is to celebrate all these aspects of the archipelago through works made using the medium of wool. It takes time, thought and patience to let the kaleidoscope of inspirations resolve into a distinct narrative thread. So to begin the creative process I made some sketches in wool – knitted objects inspired by a variety of elements that would serve as initial pathways into the development of the narrative.
