Jo Hamilton Paints The Issues Of The Day Using Crochet and Plarn
Scottish fiber artist Jo Hamilton pushes the boundaries of crochet with her subversive work – she makes crochet look like paintings!
Hamilton uses her work to comment on the complex issues plaguing society today, focusing especially on the looming climate crisis. “In my concern (and slight obsession) about the plastic pollution climate crisis, I also began upcycling as much of my own household’s plastic waste as possible into ‘plarn’ to use for my work.”
