Illustrations are hand drawn and each card is individually hand crafted.
By buying this you will give a gift to charity at the same time: RSVP (Birmingham and Solihull) www.rsvporg.co.uk. - raising funds to help survivors of sexual violence move on with their lives with hope and meaning.
Card handmade from recycled card and handspun newspaper yarn with a kraft brown recycled envelope and wrapped in a compostable corn starch wrapper.
Newspapers may seem black & white and full of bad news but hand spinning the paper into yarn reveals hidden colours and the words are given new life. Good news from bad, new stories from old ones - why not make this little piece of good news from bad, a piece of your story now?
Any colour in the yarn has come from the ink in the newspaper - I don't add colours! I have searched through newspapers to find Rudolph's red nose!
I am a designer-maker living in Birmingham with long term mental health difficulties. crafting as part of a wonderful social and therapeutic crafts group, called "Arts With Hearts" which is a part of the Rape and Sexual Violence Project (Birmingham & Solihull).
Please visit www.rsvporg.co.uk for more information about the charity.
