Artist Crochets Balaclavas, Then Turns Them Into Wild Masks With Yarn

 

@threadstories is a visual artist based in Ireland. Her ongoing mask project started nearly 4 years ago when she was making a mask for a music festival and stumbled upon a technique that she still uses today. In an interview with Red Milk Magazine she explains:

Each mask starts with a crochet balaclava, I then thread yarn through some or all of the stitches to build form or play with movement

 

The artist held her first exhibition last August at the Kilkenny Arts Office and you can find her latest works on her fast growing Instagram page. To learn more about the project check out the short vid embedded below by Sixbetween.
