Studio news/blog

I recently stumbled upon the artist Tamlin Blake’s work and I love the medium she use but maybe more importantly HOW she uses it!

On her website it says:

“Tapestry itself is traditionally a form of story telling.  In this case the medium, threads made from handspun newspaper, literally contain peoples’ stories, sometimes even those from our own experience.  Like the paper they are printed on, these used up and discarded tales have been reinvented and recycled, woven back and forth in an intricate pattern to form images which then in turn create a new contemporary narrative”.
