Crochet Coral Reef

Continuing on with my beach week theme, I'm going to show you guys this awesome exhibition we went to called, Sunshine Coast Satellite Reef.   The exhibition collated hundreds of crochet contributions from around Australia making one super clever, coral installation.

One of my favourite things was seeing how the artists used different yarns to create different textures, there was fluffy yarn, glitter yarn and even teabags - eep! Plus the colours just killed me - in the best when possible :)

Another cute feature was they had a section were you could pick up and touch items just like at a real aquarium - I'm totes all for art that lets you touch it! Now onwards to the photos!

















Could you pick the teabags?

I've got one last post to wrap up this beach themed week and it's my own artwork - woohoo!
