Knit or Crochet? Calling all Yarn Bombers!

 

Come help create fun public art to promote Vancouver Mini Maker Faire!

We’re looking for those of you who knit or crochet to help make the following projects happen:

 

Yarn Bombing Art Bikes

Immediately, we have tall-bikes from our Art Bike Project to yarn bomb and decorate by April 25. These will be on display at our next fundraiser on April 28, and locked to prominent bike racks around the city after that.

 

Yarn Bomb Sculptures

This is going to be an ongoing project, but the first installation will be on Sunday, May 6, for Got Craft?. We’ll be installing crochet/knit covered plastic bottle sculptures to telephone poles etc. along Commercial Drive leading up to the Royal Canadian Legion where the event will be held.

 

Yarn Donations

We have had some yarn donated, but we are going to need much more! So, if you have any spare bits in your yarn stash, please consider using them for these projects. And start saving your plastic bottles and containers, or grab them from your neighbour’s recycling bins!

 

To sign up, or for more details, contact Christina Norberg at cnorberg@makerfaire.ca.
