Put A Ring On It, Yarn Bombing Los Angeles

Deadline: May 1, 2014 (ONLINE)

Put A Ring On It
Yarn Bombing Los Angeles

Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center
June 2014

Do you remember the childhood saying, “if you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?”

Inspired by the Beyonce song, Put a Ring on It asks what do you value so much that you would want to put a ring on it?

It can be any person or thing in your life & surroundings. Is there a great old building you’d like to see preserved? A favorite food only your grandmother made? A tree in a park near your house? The sunset over the ocean? Don’t just knit a literal yarn engagement ring for that special someone in your life – we want you to get creative!

YBLA wants you to put a knit or crochet ring on what you love and take a photo of it. YBLA wants photos of knit & crochet (yarn art, whatever) rings attached to the objects of your love.

Make a ring, attach it, take a photo, send it to us through our website. Looking for inspiration, or a place to begin?

The introduction of Put a Ring on It will be in a gallery exhibition at the Manhattan Beach Creative Art Center, June 2014. Please send us a picture of your ring by May 1, 2014 to be included in the exhibition.
