Last week a group of stitchers braved the weather to install our Park Your Yarn commission in Wolverhampton. It was quite a dreary couple of days but we kept our spirits up with plenty of tea and biscuits.
For the past 5 weeks we’ve been holding drop in sessions all over Wolverhampton asking people to knit pieces. We had such a brilliant response with over 500 pieces of knitting being used in the final installation.
I’d like to say a big thank you to Helen, Lilith, Lauren, Cat, Vickie for helping out with the install. Also a big thank you to Katja for documenting the project and Zoe and Kate from Wolverhampton Art Gallery and Rachael and Cheryl from ArtYarn for making the project such a pleasure to work on. And finally a massive thank you to everyone who knitted a piece for the installation. It really wouldn’t have been the success that it has been without everyone taking part.
