Playscape Landscapes

As the gnome requests are filled, and having now made hundreds of the little playful wool fiber sculptures, the playscape became an important design feature to develop. To offer a one of a kind landscape for the gnomes to play in has become most enjoyable as each are so unique. The playscape initially was to offer a safe place for the wool sculptures to play without distressing the fibers too much. Some playscapes that feature a cave entrance as shelter for the gnomes and woodland friends, are designed to hang on the wall as art when not being engaged in story / play time – the cave becomes a pocket for little felted friends to sleep. The mushroom circles and houses are very popular and a joy to make. I am now designing a tree stump house that folds out and will act like a portable toy when all closed up. So exciting – when complete will post pictures :O) find more on my instagram account under artistleahwilson.
