Worcestershire Textile Artist Raya Brown will donate her wool painting to MIND charity.
Textiles Artist Raya Brown from Kidderminster Worcestershire will support the local Mind of Warwickshire and Worcestershire charity and the National Mind Charity in the event on Saturday 17th November 11am-2pm at Defford Village Hall by donating one of her Wool Paintings worth £250 to the charity. The painting is called ‘Cornfields in Worcestershire’.
The picture is created in a unique technique of painting with fibres or as some people call it ‘Wool Watercolour’. Wool Painting involves creating pictures using a variety of natural fibres such as Merino wool and silk. Wool painting is about placing the strokes of coloured fibres as one would place the brushstrokes. The results are strikingly rich in colour and texture. Raya’s paintings look like watercolours from the distance. However, with a close look you see the individual fibres, beautiful colour effects and textures.
Raya says that MIND charity is close to her heart and she will be happy to take part alongside other local businesses in this event. The local businesses that will have their stalls at the event are:
-Reflexology from Victoria Hart Therapies,
-Massage from Nerys Mayhew,
