Yarn Bombing - Coffee & Convos in the Gallery

Let’s chat about yarnbombing over coffee and if your hands want to keep busy, you can help out with getting yarn installations ready for the kids Create Stations at the next BoHo Fest.

Yarn bombing is a fairly new phenomenon in the street art world, with the earliest examples of it dating back to as early as 2002, though the term didn't really start to catch on until around 2005. It started out as cozies over objects or sewn together knitted/crocheted materials. Gradually, over time, artists have developed custom designs and created amigurumi like creatures and incorporated characters into their work. There is a wide range of technique and styles now that make up yarn bombing.

Thanks to the internet the movement has been able to spread rapidly worldwide as groups have come together to yarnbomb their cities and share their work over the web

COFFEE & CONVOS is a new way to connect at the LCFA each Friday at noon. The aim is to Learn, Share, Connect. It's laid back and casual. There's a new topic each week but feel free to take an adventurous detour.

+ Gather in the gallery space where the art will inspire you.

+ Relax in the comfy chairs with a cup of yummy brew.

+ Meet interesting and like minded people.

+ Chat about topics relating to the arts, creativity, community and collaboration.
