"YARN - the Movie" is coming to London
August 25th 2016
Did you heard the BIG news? "YARN - the Movie" is coming to London!
The first UK screening of the film will take place at the Hackney Picture House on Sunday the 9th of October. Here is a short trailer:
"YARN - the Movie" is everything we like about yarn, knitting and crochet. The screening is a chance to share our passion, celebrate, get inspired, networking, meet new knitters and crocheters...
I'm writing to you because we are organising an Art Exhibition, at the gallery space in the Hackney Picture House, as a parallel event of the screening of the film. We are looking for knitted, crochet and yarn art works. Anything from free-style knitting, amigurumi, crochet sculptures, film-inspired jumpers, etc...etc... If you would like to take part of the exhibition, please send me some pictures or information of your work as soon as possible. The exhibition will run for about one month, 1 or 2 weeks before and after the screening of the film.
There is also a possibility to have a stall (maybe we can share one between all the artists?) in the attic of the Hackney Picture House where the After Party will take place.
We are also looking to decorate the cinema with some yarn bombing. If you have any left over yarn, small or huge pom-poms, knitted bunting, old blankets, funky jumpers or if you want to help us, please get in touch.
