Ever heard of yarn bombing? It has become quite the rage in beautifying some of the common everyday street furniture around our suburbs, particularly in the inner city. Yarn bombing is a form of street art that uses colourful displays of knitted or crocheted wool or other fibres to create beautiful public spaces.
Come along and help yarn bomb the Community House mesh fence, parking sign poles and other street furniture around the Community House at the Market and Swap Party on Thursday 1st November. Help us to get the house looking pretty for the Open Day on Saturday 17 November 2012.
The Fawkner Community House is surrounded by a mesh fence at the back of the carpark with several parking sign poles. To help make the Community House pretty for Open Day on Saturday 17 November we are going to yarn bomb the fence and surrounding street furniture.
Here is a simple guide in how to start yarn bombing. Time to get out those crochet and knitting needles and knit up a some designs for around Fawkner Community House.
