More about London Kaye:

London Kaye is a street artist based in Los Angeles, California. Her unique use of crochet to create art pieces made entirely of yarn has brought smiles to communities around the world and has allowed London to create a business out of something handmade.   Born in Los Angeles, California, London received her BFA in dance from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. After graduating London realized that her love for crochet, and unexpected joy, came together harmoniously when she began using crochet to interact with the environment and surrounding community. She began installing art daily on the streets of Brooklyn and New York City. Quickly her work became easily recognizable by her community’s people and businesses.   London launched her own line of yarn specifically made for indoor and outdoor use, and her first book titled, Crochet with London Kaye. Through her time leading workshops and teaching crochet, London came to realize the best qualities of her favorite crochet hooks and combined them together using 3D printing technology to create a unique new style “Crochet Hook with a Twist”. She received a patent for the design. As London’s career has expanded to collaborating with brands like Starbucks, Miller Lite, Disney, and The Gap, she continues to crochet street art for her neighborhood and beyond.
