All Things Green Man & The Traditional Jack-in-the-Green

Crocheted Green Man

CH1

Serial Green Man sleuth John Roper let me know about this wonderful Green Man quilted wall hanging that he spotted at the Open art exhibition at Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery at the end of 2019. I managed to get in touch with it’s creator Charlotte Holm who kindly sent me these wonderful pictures of her work in progress as well as the finished green man. Charlotte wrote “A friend taught me to crochet a couple of years ago so I decided to try and make a green man out of crocheted leaves. The green man is a subject I keep returning to and I have made quite a few textile ones over the last few years. I arranged the leaves so that they created a face, the hardest part was crocheting a nose! The design is totally original and handsewn- after crocheting, the wall hanging is then quilted on to material.”

Charlotte is a textile artist, “Although I got my degree in illustration, I have taught myself how to sew as I liked the texture and look of quilted fabric. I am interested in ancient things- fossils, archaeology, stone circles and chambered tombs… also pagan themes which all reflect in my work.”
