Wool needed for ‘yarn bombing’

yarn bombing

The Creative Network run the annual visual arts festival WOSAT (Western Open Studios Art Trail) in May.

A spokesman said: ‘Yarn bombing is knitted graffiti or street art which involves decorating street furniture, trees, cars – literally anything – with colourful and decorative knitting or crochet to create a wonderfully cheerful effect.’

The group is talking to Peel Commissioners about where to ‘yarn bomb’ but for everyone else, the first thing they will know is when they see Peel a riot of colourful knitted objects.

A group of knitters are already busy working on the project but as this is such an ambitious project they are looking for donations of acrylic yarn, not pure wool as the knitting will have to survive outside in all weathers.

Shoprite stores, island wide, have agreed to act as venues for the yarn donations and there will be a bag at most stores where people can drop off any unwanted yarn.

Yarn can also be dropped off at the Isle Gallery at Tynwald Mills, St John’s.

WOSAT will take place over the bank holiday weekend of May 3, 4 and 5 as long as Isle of Man Arts Council funding has been secured.

Although the event is based in Peel and the west about 40 artists will participate from all over the island.

There will be exhibitions and demonstrations at a variety of venues many artists will be opening their studios to the public.

Shops, galleries, boards of commissioners, churches, pubs and museums will be acting as venues for the various activities.
