Yarnbombing Los Angeles has put out a call for entries for a collaborative fiber art project themed “California Landscapes”.
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.”
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.
Una Lorenzen’s documentary titled “yarn” takes a look at knitting and crochet artists around the world and the interesting work that they are doing with needles, hooks and yarn. The film debuted at SXSW to mixed reviews but looks worth a watch to me.
Christelle, known as StelCrochet on Instagram, began crocheting in 2011, which is the same year that she started her blog Haak-en-stekie.
Jane, known to many as queen_babs, is a yarn bomb artist who lives in Sydney, Australia and who peppers Instagram with her beautiful images accentuated by poignant sayings and completed with thoughtful updates about her life experiences.
