Crochet Artist Sara Al Haddad

Sara Al Haddad got her BFA in graphic design in 2011 from Dubai’s American University. She creates artwork based on personal emotion and “aspects that society might deem as weak and unacceptable to express especially as a female.” It seems only fitting that she would frequently use the medium of crochet, historically seen as “women’s work” to express her ideas. Sara started working with embroidery as a young child and has always done something in the fiber arts. Her first solo show was last year. Harper’s Bazaar had a great article on her earlier this year.

Without Installation, 2013

This year Sara did an installation art project called Without. It was commissioned by the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority. It was designed to represent changes in a historic neighborhood and combined crochet work with the symbolism of dust to represent memories in the space.
