A cheeky little moustache card to brighten up someone's father's day!
Made from hand spun newspaper yarn and recycled card. The plastic bag is compostable. All the colour in the yarn has come from the ink in the newspaper - I don't add colours.
"Goodnewsfrombad" is all about recovery, hope and transforming old stories (particularly difficult bad news stories) into new ones.
The newspaper yarn I make is carefully handspun from hand cut, thin strips of newspaper. I have tried spindles/shredders, but I find that using my fingers helps keep the yarn fine as possible as well as allowing me more control over the colours and textures produced.
I also think there is something important about knowing the newspaper has physically passed through the hands of the maker, which transforms the bad news stories and makes them a part of your stories as you send them to your friends and family.
This card is individually hand-crafted to-order and each item may therefore look slightly different to the one photographed.
Please message me if you are interested in bespoke designs, perhaps using newspaper from a special day, for cards or more intricate or larger pieces of art as gifts.
"Good News from Bad" items are made from newspapers handspun into newspaper yarn - good news from bad, new stories from old ones and a rainbow of colour from black and white.
