Calling on creative crochet-ers,makers, craft-y people... we're going for a different yarnbomb at Wicklow Arts Festival this year. Further details coming shortly but to give you an idea for a start, we're looking for contributions of gLovebirds, colourful crochet flowers/circles/mandalas (at least 9inch diameter) & pompoms. If we get enough crochet flowers/circles we'll install them on an arch/tunnel over the footbridge.
Below are some pics as inspiration- gLovebird examples thanks to Adele & Daniel; other pics are some pieces from last year plus our pompom 2013 tree.
For gLovebirds: recycle a retired pair,odd pair,single lonely glove! Stuffing can be recycled too- old netting from fruit packaging, plastic bags. Go for a simply decorated songbird to full blown bird of paradise- have fun!
For flowers/circles: bright,colourful & crochet will work best as it'll let the light through (as we're aiming to install them on the Bridge Arch/tunnel)
Spread the word :)

Wow! Starting in Easter 1965 with 18 eggs, Volker Kraft of Eastern Germany had increased decorations to an amazing 10,000 real eggs on his tree by 2012. I wonder if he's still doing this...anyone know?
