Remember last week myself and yarn-bombing.com lace bombed this statue at The Art Gallery of South Australia?
Well, the second part of the project was to run an activity day at The Gallery for the monthly kids art club. We made pom-pom’s and did tomboy stitch (or some call it French knitting). We had 550 children through!! Oh My!! No wonder we were exhausted after that!
My sister, brother-in law, nephew and niece all came along and my nephew Odin surprised me with his amazing creativity. Of course I’m not biased in any way….. but he is a little genius!
Odin decided to yarn bomb his toy bear instead of make pom-pom’s or do toyboy stitch. I was so impressed. Of course it probably helped having an Aunt who is a famous yarn bomber!
I was amazed that at four years old Odin has his own creative vision and is incredibly artistic and devoted to making and doing his own thing. I must add that he has wonderful parents who are also both very creative and foster this in both their children. Maybe I’ll have an assistant in a couple of years who can out bomb me! I can only imagine.
Love and Art
