The Woollen Woods is an enchanting outdoor art installation, created as part of Eden Arts’ CANOPY project. The exhibit features hundreds of woodland themed woollen artworks; all made using 100% wool, in support of ‘The Campaign for Wool’. In 2013 the public were invited to make artworks for the first installation at National Trust property Acorn Bank. Hundreds of artworks were created by artists, schools, groups and individuals from throughout the UK and beyond.
There are lots of artwork ideas and patterns below, from felted squirrels, knitted birds to crochet leaves! A special tree inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film ‘The Birds’ is also being planned and we are encouraging people to make crows and ravens for it. If you would like to contribute you can download the knitted crow pattern below or use an alternative design or technique.
To get involved simply read our artwork guidelines and send your artwork along with a completed entry form to: Canopy Project, Eden Arts, 1 Sandgate, Penrith, Cumbria, UK, CA11 7TP. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org / 01768 899444 if you have any queries.
