More about Kinsler’s crochet art

Most of the artistas del ganchillo that I feature here on the blog on Mondays are artists first and happen to use crochet as a medium. Kinsler is a little bit different because I would guess that she is a crochet lover first and expresses her love of crochet through many different channels including art. She does moretraditional” ganchillo usable, she does true crochet art and then she does something in-between, freeform wearable pieces, which I happen to think are some of the best pieces that she’s produced.

Examples of Kinsler’s crochet art

Let’s take a look at a few of Kinsler’s freeform pieces since they’re my favorites. You can see much more of them on su sitio under the Free Form Crochet tab.

You can also see some of Kinsler’s crochet art on her page under the tabCrochet as Art”. A couple of my favorite pieces:

And I also have to mention her award-winning self-portrait done in crochet because it’s so awesome!

Kinsler’s Support of Crochet Art

I think one of the most important contributions that Kinsler has made to crochet art is her long-standing support of crochet as an art form. Her website explains that she insisted from the beginning that the CGOA support crochet art at each of its Chain Link conferences. She herself helped to curate two large crochet art exhibitions in the past decade.

  1. I’ve always liked her stuff, I like the 1st sweater the mosst.

  2. I only know her through articles and what others have to write about her, but her art is amazing. Freeform is not a technique that I have ever done, but I definitely appreciate others who create it.

    • @Cris – I’ve only done a little bit of it myself but i’m getting some practice this month by following the freeform CAL that Crochet Liberation Front is doing for July.

  3. Met Gwen through Ravelry
