reweaving the EU flag

This week I started a new project. I have been commissioned by artist Sanne Vaassen for an exhibition she is having at the Unit 1 gallery in Notting Hill at the end of July. She has pulled apart a number of EU flags so they are just bundles of threads and has given these bundles to weavers to remake. Today I have been tying the lengths of yarn together and winding the warp. Extreme mending.
