"Home Mask Relations"
Want a different slant on your knitting and crochet projects? Then don't miss out on this opportunity to be a part of something bigger than our local community.
Meet Danish Artist, Isabel Berglund at Tempe Yarn on Friday, March 17th (6 to 8 pm) and learn about her Social Art Project: Home Mask Relations.
The idea behind this US-based community project is to create an Art Work that represents a cross section of the United States through knitted and crocheted pieces representing the participants floor plan. Isabel will be collecting the pieces and then assembling them into her Art. The finished project will be
exhibited at Florida Atlantic University Schmidt Galleries November 2017 through January 2018 in Boca Raton, FL. It will also travel as part of the exhibition, Material Domestication at The Museum of Craft and Design, San Francisco in 2019.
Want to be a part of this project?
Come meet Isabel on Friday March 17th for an introduction to the project. Isabel is recruiting knitters and crocheters to participate in helping her make the pieces and will be able to address all your questions. The event is scheduled from 6 to 8 pm.
Eager to get started that night? Bring crochet hooks and/or knitting needles appropriate to the yarn you wish to use. Please bring a sketch of your house/apartment floor plan. Patterns and instructions will be provided at the workshop. Yarn (from your stash or purchased at Tempe Yarn) in any variation of red and green is to be used for the project.
On Sunday March 26th (1-4 pm), Isabel will return to Tempe Yarn to talk about this art project again. Anyone who has completed a piece can drop it off anytime before or on that Sunday.
