Handmade play-scapes and play-mats made of wet-felted wool.Oh, these stunning felted play mats. Such a fun to make them, and such a fun to see the kids being engaged with them. The miniature nature at home. Fantasy and imagination are unstoppable around these playscapes. Crossing rivers by jumping on the wet rocks while the water is running under our feet, having a rest next to a waterfall, climbing mountains and to imagine different forests around us, oak, pine or gum. As meditation can heal, thinking about nature while sitting at home can be uplifting too, a way for the kids to place themselves into nature wherever they are.I always use a sturdy but still soft wool as a base for these mats, on top of that i apply the beautiful and vibrant merino wool, highlighted with some silk fibres, sometimes embroidery or beads. It is all wet felted, strong and beautiful. These mats are made to order, placing a deposit is available at my shop, then we will discuss all the details.
This is a felted playmat for surfers, those waves are great!
Strong, sturdy water-repellent felt had been made since thousands of years because of its unique properties and its strength. I m glad I had the opportunity to make a cave-men play mat from felt!
Love these different sceneries on the felted play-scapes.
Some of the felted caves are like tunnels, some has just one entrance.
Various sceneries, different caves, and different cave-flats, some with more entrances, some with just one. It has 4 separate caves, so everyone can choose their own scenery on this felted landscape.
Wow, this felted playscape for cavemen and sabre-tooth tigers! This is my favourite part of history! This mat also made out of wool entirely a been wet-felted to be strong and durable.
Some yarns and beads are felted into the mat.
Here is the cave where the penguins lives. These mats are so strong that it is water repellent, very hard to make them dirty and easy to clean it.
This felt playscape had been made for penguins. It is fully wet felted also, and has some mohair and beads as flowers also some yarns for seaweed, and various rocks in the sea for the penguins to hang out.
I love how strong wool can be!
When lava crawles into the river and it boils and bubbles. I love the power of this playscape!
Ah, yes, the dinosaur eggs. They are silk-cocoons sawn into the base of the feltscape.
This playscape is wet-felted, therefore it is strong and indestructible. Made out of wool.
I realised I always think about fairy lands, and that it is not fair with the boys. So I made this landscape for the dinosaurs! The early stages of our planet, with running volcanos, dinosaur eggs and heavily running rivers, showing the power of nature that can be so calling while playing with those shuddering dinos.
