Lisa Anderson Shaffer is a textile artist who creates crochet art pieces and also has a line of fiber art jewelry called Zelma Rose. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to interview her about her work, her history with crochet and how crafting has offered benefits in her life as well as the life of her grandmother.
Yarnbombing Los Angeles has put out a call for entries for a collaborative fiber art project themed “California Landscapes”.
Shauna Richardson is an award winning crochet artist who specializes in the art of crochetdermy.
All of her work, including her crochet work, weaves together themes of womanhood, femininity, strength, and societal roles. This art challenges people to look at what defines women and women’s art and to question any assumptions made about those things.
