Sign ups are now open for the October 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.
October Van Gogh Yarn Box – Self Portrait 1889
October’s Van Gogh Yarn Box will be based upon ‘Self Portrait 1889’. The painting is one of around 30 self portraits created by Van Gogh over a 10 year period. He would often paint himself as he was not able to afford to pay models to sit for him. The painting was acquired by the Musée d’Orsay in Paris in 1986.
Boxes will be available to purchase until Friday October 25th 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’, May’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was inspired by ‘Wheatfield With Crows’, June’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was based on ‘Flowering Plum Orchard, July’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which took its inspiration from ‘Almond Blossom’ and August’s Van Gogh Yarn Box which was based on Seascape.
