Barcelona Patchwork

Barcelona Patchwork

Love this


Free UK postage.

I started this art piece in Barcelona in August 2014, and finished it in London, February 2015.

It is made from discarded leaflets and used tickets, and then mounted onto an old Thomas Lawrence poster (see image).

It is extremely eco-friendly, as everything used in its making was destined for the bin.

It is completely unique. There is not another the same.

Each of the 81 squares has been hand sewn.

You can follow the making of this piece on my blog (, where I record the history of each little square in detail.

It comes unframed, but is ready for framing.

It measures 45cms x 45cms, this includes a 2.5cms border which will be hidden by your mount when you get it framed. The border is not in pristine condition, as it is an old poster, but I just wanted to give your framer something to work with. The actual patchwork area is 40cms x 40cms (approx).

All of my work is individually numbered, this piece is 610.

The price includes first class 'signed for' delivery.

I use Royal Mail Parcelforce for overseas parcels, it is expensive but is insured and tracked. It is not included in the price.

Please note, if you live outside the EU you are responsible for paying import duties or taxes, in accordance with your country's customs laws.
