Yarnbombing - Wooly Street Art

Crochet ready for another yarnbomb

Last week we talked about wool week and this beautiful, natural material continues to make an impact in modern life and it is becoming more and more fashionable. Yarnbombing is a kind of street graffiti using wool as the medium and bringing art to the people. 

I myself am a yarnbomber and have been known to leave explosions of wooly art on the streets and in public places for people to enjoy and to show people that art is not just a picture on a wall in a gallery but can span so many different mediums, cultures and experiences and that it is always, always for people to enjoy. 

Last week some artists approached me and asked me to yarnbomb their town hall as part of an installation for the launch of a visual arts exhibition they are currently holding. Of course, I could not resist, and although I just had days to pull it together - I did and created a showstopper for the town hall and it's stunning staircase. 

If you find yourself in Trowbridge - then be sure to make a bee line for the town hall and my yarnbomb and see what you think of a yarnmbomb for yourself, please do let me know as I am always intrigued to hear how people experience this kind of art.
