The Big Green Taro Leaf

This leaf is just over 24 inches long and has had two coats of pva glue and allowed to dry. I then traced a around a bread and butter plate to get the circle in the centre. The was woven using hand spun colours fleece and then the leaf parts (not the veins) removed from the back of the weaving. I attached a small piece of the bark from the silver birch that came down and then attached three "flowers" made from silk cocoons with stamens of seed beads in the centre bottom
