Calling all crafters to yarn bomb King George Square
Calling all Brisbane crafters, craft groups and collectives to unite on 1 June to yarn bomb King George Square, Brisbane CBD!
"Brisbane nights are gettin' chilly! Calling all crafters to yarn bomb us with some winter woollies!"
As part of BrisStyle's Craft Caravan Festival all Brisbane crafty groups and individuals are invited to yarn bomb King George Square!
When? Friday 1 June, 10am-4pm
Where? King George Square, Brisbane CBD
How does it work?
You can either yarn bomb by yourself or as a group to your heart's content! If you're feeling a little timid drop your knitting or crochet off to the crafting oasis at the Craft Caravan Festival.
"We'd love some leg warmers to brighten up all those tourists' photos on 1 June!"
What is yarn bombing anyway?
We like to think of it as a non-permanent crafty style of street art that will warm up the heart of Brisbane's CBD. For some yarn bombing inspiration from around the world check out the Brown Owls Pinterest page.
I don't know how to knit or crochet, how can I take part?
You can learn! There's nothing like learning a new craft and at the next Brown Owls Craft Group meet up held at Imogen's Art Space on Monday 28 May at 6pm you can learn crochet and knitting. It's free and the details of the meet up are here.
You can also learn to knit and crochet at the Brown Owls all day meet up on yarn bombing day, 1 June at the BrisStyle Craft Caravan crafting oasis, King George Square.
"I'd love a bit of colour to brighten up my day" said lion number one.
"I'd like a big beanie!" said lion number two.
Let's spread the word far and wide, feel free to pass the link to this post on to everyone and anyone (or group) you know that might be interested in getting involved.
The BrisStyle Craft Caravan promises to be an awesome day of crafty workshops, demonstrations, markets, and more!

P.S. Did you know that King George Square is also full of luscious trees now which are begging to be warmed up with your UFO (unfinished object) crochet and knitting!
