Jennie looks long and hard at the countryside around her to translate it, as faithfully as she can, into her chosen wools and felts, hand dyed. Her new Peat Below, Sky Above collection is a three-tier exploration of her local Somerset Levels. It is inspired by the dark peat soil, the patchwork of fields and wetland nature reserves above and the wide, overarching skies.
These highly unusual and inventive landscape scenes are made of British Shetland wool with a mixture of hand-dyed silk fabric and fibres, plant fibres such as soya, cotton and flax, wool locks and hand-spun yarn.
