Title: Rainbows and Butterflies

The inspiration for this piece was the rainbows that came to symbolize the thanks for those working during covid-19 pandemic in the UK (in particular the NHS) The rainbow butterflies give a sense of hope but also the fragility of that hope in the time in which we find ourselves 

A Kaleidoscope uses light and reflection to create beautiful, fascinating repeating patterns. A rainbow also uses light and reflection to create something of beauty.  

Materials and Techniques:

Wet felting, needle felting, wool, locks, hand dyed antique lace, Angelina fibres and silk tops, painted, stitched and melted Lutradur.
