Knitters get making to help yarn-bomb Honiton gallery
PUBLISHED: 11:00 25 February 2016
A group of knitters have started making colourful decorations which will be used to ‘yarn-bomb’ Honiton-based Thelma Hulbert Gallery’s (THG) garden.
Caroline Kolek, the town’s mayor, was joined by others to knit the woolly garments, which will be strung up in the gallery’s front garden later this year.
Yarn-bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.
The knitting sessions were held over two days at the gallery, which will be yarn-bombed to recognise the work carried out in town to help people living with dementia.
