The Wool Fish- Rainbow Trout Music Festival, St Malo MB

‘The Wool Fish’ at Rainbow Trout Music Festival, St Malo MB.

This interactive textile piece was built under a canopy with a pully system. Participants could pull on any of the strings handing down from the outside, and 26 different areas of the puppets will move up and down depending on which strings were selected. Participants can use the puppets to express themselves and manipulate the movements.

It was dubbed at the festival by a child ‘The Wool Fish” and it stuck.

I have written about the dye processes associated with this piece on some earlier posts. They are made with handspun wool and linen, with cochineal, indigo and onion skin dyes.
