Elin Thomas & Breaking the Mould

Knitting, crochet, and embroidery have all taken on an evolution of sorts in the past few years. Far from being a hobby, these crafts have become a way to earn a sizable income.

But for Elin Thomas, it means all that and more. In her series “mould and lichen”, Thomas honors nature by crocheting and embroidering the spores she observes in nature. The canvas acts as a petri dish that incubates art.
