We make no secret of the fact that we are geeks. Homely, folky little hipster geeks that happen to enjoy mixing pleasures like putting nutella with ice-cream. Or honey and popcorn sandwiches. Or more horror movies and yarning. Only we can’t yarn. Which means that we will be going to the Sydney Laneway Learning festival where we will learn all about crocheting and yarn bombing so we can knit the shit out of a some trees in the park before the end of winter!
This coming Wednesday, July 31, a group of professional yarners will be taking centre stage to teach the intricate art of yarn bombing. What is yarn bombing? Well – it’s like graffiti, but nanna-styles. Basically, you crochet or yarn public spaces like telegraph poles, bike racks, trees, children. Maybe not children. Well, maybe some children because they can be right little bleeders. But mostly immobile things. It’s street art and non-permanent, friendly graffiti, intended to brighten and decorate public spaces.
The fee for the night is a measly $16 and this includes your own crochet hook that you will use on your new path towards becoming a radical social activist knitter of public things. You will also get to learn the history of yarn bombing and several other art forms, so you’ll come out not only a more skilled person, but a smarter, better person.
Yarn class will take place at Cowbell 808, 616 Bourke Street Surry Hills.
