Crochet the City: Lugwardine

This is a piece of work I did in May 2010, inspired by a drop-in workshop I’d done as part of Craftspace’s Craft Collective project (pictures of that in this Flickr set). Having spent a rainy afternoon  playing with hand-crochet techniques using barrier tape, I got home to our little village of Lugwardine and saw a telegraph pole cordoned off with just the same stuff. I couldn’t resist…

The idea was to crochet with the materials of the urban (or, in this case, not-so-urban) environment, to reposition a technique that we think we understand in a new context.
