I’m always a little bit intrigued by crochet dolls. I’m not talking about amigurumi animals here (although those are adorable and I like them as well!) but instead dolls, especially art dolls, handcrafted in crochet. There are several instagram accounts that I follow that send these inspiring creations to my feed. Here are a few of them to spark your imagination today.
I always pause for a moment to enjoy the granny square art photos that filter through my Instagram stream thanks to artist WorkByKnight. This artist doesn’t crochet (as far as I know) but takes accumulated images of crochet granny squares from various sources and uses them as the basis for wonderful art images.
If you follow my Sunday Instagram roundup posts then you’ve already seen some of the magical, inspired work that artist Oliviartcreations has shared there. I love what she does. It has a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor and a terrific sense of color, and I wanted to share more of it here with you today.
Vicky Harrison is a teacher, artist and crochet lover who runs the shop Paper Village in Bristol. The shop is a base for collaborative community-oriented arts projects including popular crochet projects.
I was excited to see that 1970s crochet artist Bonnie Meltzer is teaching a workshop this fall called Creative Crochet Sculpture. Although I can’t attend myself, it looks like a great opportunity to explore new dimensions in crochet art.
As you probably know, I’m a huge fan of crochet art. I love seeing the unique and original things that people can do with crochet, putting it together in ways that the rest of us haven’t thought of. If you’re also a fan then you might like today’s round up 25 new examples of inspiring, interesting crochet art.
Earlier this year freeform crochet artist Prudence Mapstone put out a call for contributions for her collaborative flower power art project celebrating the history and artistry of crochet. I was so thrilled to collaborate with my mother on a small piece to send to the project. I wanted to give an update on that project here today.
