Love this


A patchwork of 'dads'. I found discarded around London.

Signed and dated original collage, not a print. Never to be reproduced or printed.

It measures 21cms x 21cms, but there is extra border to trim for framing. A frame is not included.

Hand-stitched using conked-out old books, magazines, postcards and junk mail, so very eco-friendly.

£5 from this sale will go to Arts Emergency. This is a small London based charity aiming to ensure university doors are kept open for those most able to benefit from, but least able to pay for education.

In keeping with my eco-friendly ethos, it will arrive in a package made from used magazines and the like. I do not use single-use plastic and parcel tape.

Can be sent as a gift, with words of your choice.

Please be aware that if you live outside the EU you may be subject to a charge in accordance with your country's customs/duties laws. Free UK delivery.


It gives me a kick to make art out of things others discard. Not to mention being very eco-friendly. All of the images I have used here were picked from the bins of London's museums, art galleries, shops and theatres

I absolutely never print anything. My materials have already been printed by someone else, and then thrown away.

Further information about the making of this piece can be found on my blog or by searching the Instagram hashtag AlisonSye798

*To avoid fading the newsprint keep out of direct sunlight. If framing use UV protection or museum glass.
