Wall Hanging Inspo/Research

I first started gathering inspiration for my wall hanging and how to display it from my magazines. Most of the wall hangings I found were rugs, and there were a few tapestries. I don’t have the equipment or time to make a rug or tapestry, so I want to make a length of fabric that is heavily patterned and hand-painted to give it the feel of a piece of art. The most common way of displaying a wall hanging from the magazine photos seems to be to pin it up or hang it from a pole.

I found this photo of a wall hanging online, which is also a rug but looks more hand-drawn and detailed than some of the other rugs I have seen. I love how it is the centrepiece of the room and that it draws the eye in and brings together all of the colours in the room.

When I looked online, I also found this photo of a framed length of fabric, which seems like another interesting way to display my wall hanging when finished.

From my research, I have decided to hang my wall hanging from a hazel branch I had in my garden, as it fits in with the natural theme of the project and goes with the uneven design of my wall hanging.
