I previously shared an announcement about the documentary YARN by Una Lorenzen, a film that looks at four different knitting and crochet artists (including Olek) with an eye towards all of the cutting-edge things that yarn crafting can do. Today I have an interview with the film’s co-director and producer Heather Millard, who shares, “I want people to enjoy the film, to lose themselves in yarn for a little while, to feel inspired by what yarn can create and represent.”
I have been perusing the archives of this blog, going back several years to find the gems. Here is a collection of great crochet art pieces that appeared on this blog a long time ago but shouldn’t be overlooked today!
In my last roundup of beautiful crochet art, I mentioned street artist Julia Riordan. Her work is amazing so I wanted to share more of it with you today.
I always love everything that Maya makes over at Little Treasures, so it’s no surprise that I love the things that inspire her as well. I was immediately captured by her post about crochet jewelry artist Miho Fujita and was compelled to find out more information about the artist if I could.
I am always astounded by what people are doing in crochet art, taking their skills with crochet and applying original ideas to create the most unique items!
I am always delighted to see upcycled doily items by Maillo in my Instagram feed, and it’s pure joy to go through the online Maillo boutique. I thought I was going to say more about this but what I find as I sit down to write this is that the images really and truly speak for themselves!
Last fall I received a beautiful wooden jewelry frame from eWoodStory, which I filled with some textured crochet. I was happy with what I created, but it’s absolutely nothing compared to some of the stunningly beautiful works of art that have emerged inside of these little frames. They aren’t just filled with crochet – people are filling them with embroidery and other stitchery as well – and I swear every time I see a creation I think it’s better than the last.
