CLOSED Fiberside Chats: Anna Hrachovec April 30, 2023
Come and visit Mochimochi Land!
Play is essential to creativity and problem solving, and knitting toys is so much more than kid stuff! Join Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land as she brings you on a tour of her playful knitted world—a world that started with gifts for friends and has evolved into art installations, children’s books, and even a forthcoming television show. Anna will share how she takes an idea from sketch to finished creature in a matter of hours, along with her top tips for toy knitting. Plus, she’ll leave you with inspiration and ideas for making your wooly friends come to life using stop-motion animation.
Anna Hrachovec is a Chicago-based designer and artist who loves to knit little creatures. Just about everything is more fun in tiny knitted form, so she’s inspired by everything! Under her designer brand, Mochimochi Land, Anna has created hundreds (and hundreds!) of knitting patterns that can be found in books and on her website (mochimochiland.com) and Ravelry. When she’s not making cute stuff out of yarn, Anna is busy making stop-motion animations with her woolly friends. Her heart-knitting gnome is one of the most widely shared GIFs in the world.
