The Glen Arbor Arts Center is hosting a yarn bomb Maker Day on Sunday, April 28, 1 – 3 pm at the GAAC, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. This is the first of four Makers Days leading up to a September 15 yarn bombing/installation in Glen Arbor. Yarn bomb-making is a no-fail, friendly community event for people of any needle skill.
Yarn bombing is a form of temporary street art where yarn in any form (knit, crochet, latch hook, cross stitch, amigurumi or simple wrapping) adorns an object [e.g. tree trunk or limbs, poles, waste can] in the public environment. In addition to sharing more details about the September 15 installation, we’ll begin work on the yarn bombs. There will be a short presentation about the activity of yarn bombing. Please bring: your needles, craft yarn, old
wool sweaters that no one will wear, yarn sewing needles. This yarn bombing is part of our upcoming exhibition “Fiber Without Borders,” September 13 – November 7.
We need donations of craft yarn, large size knitting needles, and old wool sweaters for this project are welcomed. Drop off your donations at the GAAC, and Wool and Honey in Cedar, Michigan.
For more information call the GAAC, 231/334-6112.
