Yarn bombing is a form of street art in which knitting and/or crochet is used to decorate parts of the urban landscape - trees, fences, lamp posts - you name it, and someone somewhere has probably tried to cover it with yarn!
Nathan Coburn, one of our knit-night regulars, has received a grant to do a yarn bombing project here in Kitsilano. He is hosting a workshop for the project at Wet Coast Wools, and has invited the public to help him out.
Join us, starting this Saturday, October 13th, from 2-4pm, to help him create the knit and crochet fabric that will be used in his upcoming yarn bombing project. Additional workshops will be held October 20th, 27th, and November 3rd. The yarn will be provided, but we ask that you please bring your own 5mm knitting needles and/or crochet hooks. If you can only make one of the four days, that's not a problem - we'd love to have you participate however you can. :)
If you haven't yet met Nathan, you can read more about him - and his project - in this week's Vancouver Courier!
