What is acceptable as handmade?

I have an old calendar which has Jack Vettriano prints for each month of the year. It is a shame to throw it away so I thought I could up-cycle this item and re-use the prints to mount and frame them. What do you think?

Hi Esterina, not sure you able to do that and sell them under copyright law’s. I’m no expert but I do use old books and have to make sure they are free from copyright before I use them :).

Yes, fine to upcycle them for your own use, but as soon as you try selling them, you are infringing copyright and the artist could sue you. Personally, I wouldn’t risk it!
