I am well known as quite a prolific Yarn Bomber and have been involved and created several Yarn Bombs to date...so you can imagine how excited I was when Bath in Fashion approached me asking me to single-handedly Yarn Bomb the World Heritage City of Bath during Bath in Fashion week - held this year from May 5th until May 10th.
Yarn Bombing, is, as you probably know, graffiti with wool - an urban art that attempts to humanise public spaces. It’s an interaction between materials and places and at its heart lies an intention to awaken people to their surroundings often injecting humour into everyday objects. It’s an old craft with a contemporary twist. For Bath in Fashion 2014, city spaces will be decorated with roses, hand made by me, and, hopefully by you too.
Roses will be springing up in the city so make a rose and make a difference…
Here is how you, and me, can help Yarnbomb Bath and make a difference to vulnerable inner-city children through the charity Kids Company. For every hand-made crocheted rose that is made, Bath-based business Cloud Direct will pledge 10p straight to Kids Company.
So contact me here for your free crochet pattern or come to my Crochet for Charity sessions (sessions are planned every week so check the website for details) or come along on Wednesday 5th March 10.00 am – 1.00 pm at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa (the official sponsors of Bath in Fashion 2014) or alternatively on Wednesday 12th March 10.00 am- 1.00 pm Carluccio’s at Milsom Place. The deadline for sending in your rose is April 30th and they can be any size, any yarn, any pattern knitted or crochet, it's all for a great cause! Thank you x
