CRAFTvism on mY mind
I’ve been very inspired by other craftivists over the last couple of days and it has me plotting my next efforts.
Here’s a couple of my favourites that I’ve already done..
..in Sydney outside Twenty10
..and recently on International Yarn Bombing Day in my hometown Perth, Western Australia
Phoenix Needs an Extreme Crochet Makeover
With International Yarn Bombing Day about two weeks away, we can only hope the local crafting folk art community is too busy secretly stitching to get the word out on its big plans.
Yarn bombing (or, if you prefer, guerrilla knitting) forgoes paint or chalk in favor of a more colorful street art display made of cloth. From loose yarn tucked into sidewalk cracks to more large-scale “installations” redressing cold public spaces, the sky is the proverbial limit for those with leftover yarn and a yearning to display it.
Phoenix, more so than many other cities, can use that fun splash of color. Local landmarks most worthy of an extreme crochet makeover may include:
Herberger Theater Center (222 E. Monroe)
Light Rail stations
Da Pope (400 E. Monroe)
Knit your revolution - with other “fiber artists of the world uniting on one day to bring color and beauty to our urban landscape” - come International Yarn Bombing Day - June 11, 2011.
International yarn bombing day - Jayne hats?
An absolutely brilliant idea from my husband
“All the Browncoats should do an universal yarn bombing day with nothing but Jayne Hats, that anyone can pick up and take it home, or wear them”
Considering International Yarn bombing day is in June, and I think its a better idea to make yarn bombs something functional that someone can take home….and it could bring awareness to the show, and show Fox that ‘we aim to misbehave’.
My hubby doesnt know how to knit, but he comes up with the most awesome ideas!
