Do you knit and/or crochet? Do you want to? Do you love art and craft? Are you bold and like being outrageous? This two-hour workshop looks at what yarn bombing is, with worldwide and local examples. We will then design a yarn bomb and do it! Join us as we prepare for International Yarn Bombing day (held Tues 11th June).

Bring needles/crochet hooks, a tapestry needle, and wool (perhaps in suffrage colours of green, purple and white) if you have it. Leave your stress at home and/or the office, and have fun! Some wool and additional materials will be supplied (please bring $10 to give to the tutor to cover materials).

If you know a young person, 10 or over, who’d like to come, and can be part of a group of stroppy fun loving adults, that’s great - we would love to see you there! Please note minors must be accompanied by a fee paying caregiver. Diane P. McCarthy is a crafty feminist, writer, performance poet, and Project Manager of the Kate Sheppard Celebration Tours.
