Our ART ADVENT Market Newspaper introduces you to individual craftsmen and women and informs you about the daily supporting programme at Vienna’s Art Space Karlsplatz. The next market newspaper will be sent to you at the beginning of November 2017.
Last year’s yarn bombing School Project was already dedicated to a textile theme. Pupils from several schools joined forces to knit or crochet colourful woollen cozies for the entire Market. It looked fantastic!
This year will see another art project. Instructed by dedicated textile craft teachers, participating classes sewed, knitted, felted, or crocheted a collective network of modular triangular elements. The pupils were absolutely free to choose materials and techniques; only the shape of the elements was predefined. The result is a colourful network made of mostly recycled materials ranging from someone’s favourite sweater to home-printed cloth, illustrating the idea of fairness to the environment.
