If you've been following Wooster Collective, you know that we love to honor guerilla textile artists. With our sister company, BOND/360, we've been lucky enough to acquire an amazing new film: YARN, that celebrates amazing textile artists.
The film opens this Friday June 24th at the IFC Center (323 Ave of the Americas) and we would love to see you there. Filmmaker Una Lorenzen will be present for Q&As opening weekend, moderated by VOGUE Knitting's Trisha Malcolm on Friday evening.
Check out our new movie poster and trailer below!
About the film:
Meet the artists who are redefining the tradition of knit and crochet, bringing yarn out of the house and into the world. Reinventing our relationship with this colorful tradition, YARN weaves together wool graffiti artists such as Olek, circus performers, and structural designers into a visually-striking look at the women who are making a creative stance while building one of modern art's hottest trends.

Australian artist Stormie Mills creates characters that draw on profound senses of isolation and hope. On a monochromatic palette, black represents dirt, white speaks of erasure, grey is drawn from the cityscape, and silver the language of dreams. Check it out.

“Some colours for all the travellers: for joy and hope, for love and unity. More than a thousand tiles, all different but all the same“.
Mademoiselle Maurice is an established street artist who works mainly with origami and tiles, creating colourful spaces of abstractions in cities all around the world.
Her new mural, titled Rainbow Road covers platform 1 of the rail station in Maryland, London. It is composed with more than a thousand tiles, all hand painted with a rainbow colour palette.
The motif for the mural was inspired by Beckett’s play “Waiting for Godot”, where two people wait endlessly in a station for someone who never arrives. The piece questions the importance – or unimportance – of time. Is time spent waiting meaningless?
With Rainbow Road Maurice wants to look at the tiles composing the mural as train passengers and dedicate her wall to them.
