Close Knit Community: Yarn Bombing Project at Museum Nov. 16

If you’re nutty for knitting or crazy about crocheting, your skills are being sought for a yarn bombing project at Goulbourn Museum on November 16.

Yarn bombing is the art of adding a knit cover to everything from park benches to entire buses. Known as fibre graffiti, it’s easy to remove yet makes a statement by transforming cold urban landscapes into warm, colourful spaces.

The idea to yarn bomb the railing was first raised at Yap & Yarn – the Museum’s informal knitting circle that meets monthly. The finished project will help draw attention to the group as well as add festive flair to the site for the Museum’s Old-Fashioned Christmas & Outdoor Artisan Market being held on November 30th.

The yarn bombing will take place from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday November 16. If you would like to get involved, you can email kathryn@goulbournmuseum.ca or simply drop by on the day of the event. Tables and chairs will also be set up inside the Museum for those who wish to bring their knitting projects and participate in Yap & Yarn. Everyone is welcome!
