Bad ass yarn graffiti

Yes, it’s called yarn graffiti/bombing and no it’s anything but bad ass. In fact, it couldn’t be daintier, prettier or more perfect if it was made from unicorn nostril hair. The talented Isabeau Joubert from Isabeau Peep created this beautiful installation for the Dear Me/Tjing Tjing Bar event TOGETHER.

“We decided that the staircase leading from the exhibition space to the bar would be a great place for a dainty, Victorian style yarn bombing. Something that the Thursday fine diners would also enjoy and completely versatile to take off and/or dye in any colour. (the ultimate room accessory)

All together it adds up to about 4 meters of fine lace work, 2 weeks of non-stop till late night work and 5 hours to put up/install. So worth it.”

Oh yes it was. Thanks so much Isabeau, you can bomb my house any time.

  1. Also called yarn Bombing. I live in the Seychelles and i was walking along the beach and looked up into a palm tree, my eye having been attracted to something colourful in the tree. Blow me down. Someone had yarnbombed a coconut and part of the coconut palm tree. It looks fantastic. I will take a picture
