Newton and Stewart escaped from their cages and are on the run….they meet other string dogs along the way. Initially made during my residency for the Wigtown Book Festival and Spring Fling, Newton and Stewart continue to have adventures…..................

These string dogs are made from plant fibre, and stuffed with waste linen from the Scalpay Weaving Shed.
