London Kaye Cultivates Creativity at the Amazeum

Last weekend, crochet artist London Kaye took part in TinkerFest at the Amazeum in Arkansas.

While she was there, she took over the Lion Brand Snapchat account, sharing pictures as she taught the art of yarnbombing to the kids in attendance. Armed with Lion Brand Yarns, the children made pom poms and put together a bicycle-themed mural that matches Kaye's signature style.

TinkerFest is an annual day for kids at the Amazeum that celebrates "curiosity, creativity and innovation." This year, the third such event, had more than 40 different stations for children to visit, offering them the opportunity to experiment with interesting activities, such as DIY robot building and 3D printing.

London Kaye is a classically-trained dancer and street artist whose favorite medium is crochet. She got her start putting her work on fences and has since made pieces for several  national brands. London has worked with Lion Brand in the past, including earlier this year when her creations using our yarn won the "best booth" award at the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Show in California. She also paid tribute to David Bowie during her appearance at Vogue Knitting Live.

Here are some of the highlights from last weekend's event:
