Call for Yarn Art for Festival Art Installation

I’m at it again! Last summer, I lead a team to wrap Van Der Donck Park in yarn. This time I’m creating a giant tapestry to decorate the Garner Arts Center. Using bright colors and simple shapes, the tapestry will mark the entrance to the Garner Arts Festival next month.

I am collecting:

  • 4 inch wide rectangles, 2 to 8 feet long in red OR orange OR yellow solid yarn. One color per rectangle please.
  • 8 inch wide rectangles, 2 to 8 feet long in red OR orange OR yellow solid yarn. One color per rectangle please.
  • Braids, i-cords, finger-weaving (aka finger-knitting) 5 to 8 feet  long in red, orange, and yellow in solid or variegated yarn. Mixing colors is encouraged.
  • Pom Poms of all sizes in red, orange, and yellow in solid or variegated yarn. Mixing colors is encouraged.

Both knitters and crocheters are welcome to submit. Use your imagination for the stitch and design – the work will be viewed from all sides, so keep that in mind when you’re picking stitches. Reversible stitches are suggested, like garter, seed/moss, checkerboard, etc. Any size yarn and needle/hook combination are fine. I recommend cheap acrylic yarn for this, it lasts longer in the weather. I’ve been working on size 15 needles with worsted weight recently – they go really quickly!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
