Martin Winkler of Martin Winkler GbmH

Martin Winkler's trammed canvases look as though they were painted with wool.  The pattern is created by horizontal stitches which you then stitch over with a half cross stitch in the same colour wool.  The horizontal stitches give a guide to the shape and colour of the design.  And by using a great many colours, the finished tapestry is more detailed and harder wearing than a printed canvas.  Fine details like faces and hands are already stitches in petit point.  The trammed canvases always come with a generous amount of wool to stitch the pattern.
