Crocheted Art. . .
Here's a brilliant idea. Warp and Weft, a Manchester arts and craft group, have collaborated to create crocheted masks of prominent Mancunian women to place over the male busts in the town hall, all in celebration of International Women's Day. The mask in their poster shown here is of Elizabeth Gaskell. Wish I could make the trip, but more details and photos of their work can be seen on their blog.
Also check out the Woolly Bike Trail, part of the Yorkshire Festival to celebrate the beginning of this year's Tour de France. Artist Cassandra Kilbride is crocheting/yarnbombing ten themed bikes and offering workshops around Yorkshire.
