Although some people still like to argue whether “craft” is “art” (and if not then what the difference is), you simply can’t deny that these creations are art. Yarnbombers and crochet artists have been inspired by famous works of art, recreating them using sculpture, tapestry and freeform crochet.
The UNTIED-UNITED collaborative yarnbombing art project in Ypsilanti is an inspiring piece designed to fight the divisiveness happening in our country today by bringing children together in a “web of interconnectedness”.
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”.
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.
Yarnbombing is often called a feminine, friendly form of graffiti but it doesn’t usually like the kind of graffiti that most people are familiar with. Yarnbomb artist London Kaye really brings the street style into her crochet work with graphic images that represent some of the best aspects of different styles of graffiti art, all completed with yarn. I love her sense of artistic beauty and I’m hardly the only one she’s collaborated with some major name brands and partnered with various designers.
