Description

A unique bespoke piece of custom sculptural newspaper yarn art made for your wedding, or other special occasion. I will work closely with you to come up with the perfect design for you. A selection of previous commissions are pictured here but there are many more examples at: https://goodnewsfrombad.wordpress.com/newspaper-yarn-commissions/

The newspaper yarn 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 loved one.

Newspaper from the list below or that I can purchase on the date of publication, or that you can send me a copy of can be used free of additional charge. Sourcing back-dated newspapers may however incur an extra charge.
