Jane Balke-Andersen known to many online as Queen Babs is a beautiful, inspiring yarnbombing artist who brightens the world with her colorful crochet and encouraging messages. Awhile back she created a crochet flower pattern called The Courage Flower for a long term crochet art project by Sabina Speich. She has now launched her own yarnbombing project for this same flower pattern.
This 15 minute video shows a group of yarnbombers crocheting (and doing a little bit of knitting).
Crochet artist Olek has worked on a number of extreme projects as well as some great collaborations. This work is both of those things.
A lovely little yarnbombing video that’s relaxing and enjoyable to watch. Take a few minutes to breathe and enjoy!
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.
