The ‘Wool Wall’ celebrates Cullompton and the surrounding countryside’s long history of wool farming, spinning and weaving through a collaborative community artwork.
Each ceramic tile in the artwork will be press-moulded from a cast taken from a knitted or crocheted woollen square. The squares will include traditional patterns and original designs created by Cara-Jane Brameld of Fudges wool shop. Cara’s designs will be based on motifs found on buildings in the High Street and on imagery appropriate to the Baptist Church where the finished artwork will be situated. Knitters and crocheters of all ages will be
invited to take part in the project.
The finished artwork will be made of frost-proof stoneware tiles, the tiles stained in subtle shades of autumnal colours. The overall design of Wool Wall and the production and assembly of the ceramic tiles will be overseen by local artist Chris Speyer.
