Exciting news – a home has been found for the yarnbomb. In between travelling and being worked on it will be on display upstairs in the pub Widow Cullens Well (home to the Lincoln Steampunk society). It won’t be up for a couple of weeks but once it is then if you happen to be in Lincoln just pop in and have a look.
Following on from my last post – The yarnbomb will be displayed on Westgate School fence from Friday evening until Sunday evening. If you happen to be in Lincoln for the Asylum Steampunk festival (or any other reason) don’t forget to stop by and have a look.
Also speaking of the Asylum I’ve been busy making all sorts of stuff for it, just a few small things, nothing massive. I will update with photos soon, once the weekend is out the way. It starts tomorrow, so exciting!!
The Fantabulous Travelling Steampunk Yarnbomb will be on show next weekend (13, 14, 15, Sept) as part of the Asylum Steampunk Festival. I’m not 100% sure where it will be displayed but I will find out. The Asylum is a wonderful event so I strongly suggest visiting for that anyway if only to see the wonderful costumes and outfits that people will be wearing. As for the Yarnbomb itself it will feature a lot of new artworks on it for this weekend, I have seen lots of the patches online and they are lovely, inventive and really creative so if you happen to be in or around Lincoln please do go and see it.
The next showing of The Fantabulous Travelling Steampunk Yarnbomb (which my patch is part of) will be at this event in Stamford on Friday August 9:
I just wanted to share my newest creation with you all – The Splendopus (he’s a splendid octopus). He has a top hat, pipe and well groomed moustache. He’s a patch work piece that I created for on a community art piece called The Fantabulous Travelling Steampunk Yarnbomb. When I have full details of its touring I shall post them on here. A whole load of artists and Steampunks have been involved in the piece, we all submit a patch or object and then Hazel combines it all together to make one huge yarnbomb. I used felt to make my creation. I hope if the yarnbomb travels somewhere near to you that you manage to see it!
