This piece has been hand-stitched, using a vintage knitting pattern (Patons c1973) and vintage Sylko Machine Twist. I have used the actual artefact, not a copy, making this image approximately 40 years old.

You can see more about the making of this piece on Instagram, by searching the hashtag 2019sye8.

£1 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.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to give me a shout.

Thanks for visiting,
