Sign ups are now closed for the July Van Gogh Themed Yarn Box
New for 2019, Baa Baa Brighouse is celebrating the paintings of post impressionist Dutch Master, Vincent Van Gogh. Each month we will take our inspiration from one of his most famous artworks and produce a hand dyed yarn interpretation. Each yarn box will contain 200g of limited edition British Bluefaced Leicester Baa Baa Brew DK inspired by that month’s painting along with a selection of Vincent inspired extras.
July Van Gogh Yarn Box – Almond Blossom
July’s Van Gogh Yarn Box will be based upon ‘Almond Blossom’. It forms a group of paintings created between 1888 and 1890 in Arles and Saint-Remy. ‘Almond Blossom’, painted in 1890 again demonstrates Vincent’s love of Japanese art. It was given as a gift to Vincent’s brother, Theo and his sister-in-law, Jo, on the birth of their son, Vincent Willem. Vincent Willem went on to found the Van Gogh Museum.
Boxes will be available to purchase until Friday July 19th and will be posted out at the end of the month.
Take a look at the product gallery to see January’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which took its inspiration from ‘The Starry Night’, February’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which took its inspiration from ‘Irises’, March’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was inspired by ‘Sunflowers’, April’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was based on ‘The Night Cafe’ and May’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was inspired by ‘Wheatfield With Crows’.
