Newspaper yarn art - framed, knitted

Knitted newspaper yarn, handspun from newspaper by myself - a unique and interesting gift for your or a loved one's wall!

Part of the "Good News from Bad" collection:

The newspapers are full of bad news. By spinning these stories into yarn and using words taken out of their “bad news” context, bad news is spun into good – art and ideas!

Each piece is unique and signed by the artist.
6 inches square (internal measurement of frame)

This piece is called "Not Black & White". It is inspired by the theme of what is natural and whether natural is always good and artificial bad. It is inspired by the very black and white stance used by PR companies, and natural health companies/drug companies when selling us natural products. It is also inspired by the very black and white way in which newspapers seem to want to classify all food and substances into things that will kills us and things that will cure us when the reality may be much more complex.

If you would like some framed work commissioned for a wedding, birth or birthday, please get in touch. I have recently completed a custom order for a xmas gift. If you would like to use newspaper from a special day e.g. a wedding or birth - a further charge for custom newspaper will be added but it will be a very special gift indeed!
