Fiber Without Borders: YARN documentary + discussion

  • About

    Knitting and crocheting, long dismissed as home hobbies and granny-craft, are at the forefront of the current revolution in fiber arts. As part of its “Fiber Without Borders” exhibition, the Glen Arbor Arts Center will host a screening of the 2016 documentary Yarn. An audience discussion will follow the film. Yarn is presented in collaboration with the Glen Lake Community Library.

    The traditional crafts of crochet and knitting have become one of the hottest movements in modern art. Yarn looks at the new ways an old craft is transformed in the hands of several international practitioners. The film’s journey begins in Iceland and moves around the globe to sample the sometimes quirky and always thought-provoking approaches to these needle arts.

    “Fiber Without Borders,” a juried exhibition, runs September 13 to November 7 at the Glen Arbor Arts Center. For more information, please click here or call 231-334-6112.
