Cabbage Tree Serenade

This is my latest work called "Cabbage Tree Serenade" The tree is about 80cm tall and the figures about 40cm. It is for an exhibition called "Earthwaulks" by a small group of New Zealand fibre artists. The criteria for this exhibition was that everything had to be either 100% natural or dyed with plants.
I first hand made felt and knitted yarns in white merino wool and then used various plants to get the colours i wanted.

The photos have been taken by Sandra of Sandra D Photography
