This lovely yarn bombed statue was adorned in crochet lace, tablecloths and doilies by myself ilianthe Kalloniatis and my buddy Sarah-Jane Cook. The statue was yarn bombed as part of a lace exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The project took approximately 8 hours with the both of us working hard and fast on a huge scaffold. I took a few photography breaks to document the process and I really wanted to share them on my blog.
The craft of yarn bombing can take you on interesting journeys.
This yarn bombed bike has appeared in this blog before, but last time we saw it the wheels were on the ground. After this bike had a rocky life in a street art exhibition, survived stolen & returned wheels & stormy weather it has finally found a home in a palm tree. Below is a flashback of pictures from the past life of this plucky little yarn bombed bike.
When the bike was freshly yarn bombed and the yarn was bright & new.
Spotted on display on the caffe strip on Rundle st Adelaide South Australia.
After the wheels were stolen this impassioned message was left with the bike & as a result the wheels were returned although they were quite shabby. The palm tree that suspends this bike is going to be completely covered with yarn bombing so keep your eyes on this space for more photos in the future.
This bike was yarn bombed by my mates at craft club, Sarah-Jane cook, Nunya glazbrook, Branwen Davies, Maureen Cook, Melissa Waters & Me Ilianthe Kalloniatis. Special thanks goes to Nunyas mum for suggesting the wheel spoke design, which was inspired by the bike decorating competition at the Minlaton show when she was a kid.
