I’ve written about yarn bombing a couple of times before here because I love the idea of people creating art for everybody. I particularly like to hear about ‘art bombing’ projects because it has something cheeky and mysterious about it and it gives people the chance to be creative and to ‘spread a little happiness’ in the process.
Yesterday I heard about an old school friend of mine who has been quietly yarn bombing the Isle of Man (with the help of a few others from the Manx Yarnies).
Here she is talking about it on the radio.
So the craze for graffiti wool street art is spreading – yet it hasn’t come to my town yet! Come on crocheters of Shrewsbury – what are you waiting for?
