Knitting Inspiration: Gunta Stölzl

Knitting Blog Challenge Day 11

Do you have a “Knitter Hero” or someone that is just way too awesome for their own good? Do share!

Since knitting and other ‘domestic arts’ have long been seen as ‘less than’ within the arts communities and therefor poorly documented throughout history I’ve chosen one of my favorite textile artists from history. There’s more to this rant and maybe someday I’ll really get into it. But for today I just have some of my favorite images of Bauhaus Weaving Master Gunta Stölzl’s work.
