Skegness

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

I’m currently working on an outdoor visual arts commission for Skegness Open Festival 2011.  The piece is called Candy Cane Pier and for this I will be transforming the lampposts on the pier in to sticks of rock with knit graffiti (well, actually I’m using crochet, but thats just a technical point).

Production of the pieces is going well here at needlesandhooks HQ.  In total I will make 24 pieces of crochet 110 x 24cm in just over 3 weeks.  I’m already over halfway through the crocheting (at time of writing 14 done, 10 to go) and still have just over a week to complete the work.  Luckily I have cleared the diary for the final week so will be able to concentrate fully on abusing my crochet hook

I’m very excited and a bit nervous to be taking part.  It’s great to set myself a challenge and this really is one.

I’ll post up photos of the completed work once its been installed next week.  Until then I’d better get back to my crocheting
