some unique work in the tunnel. Graffiti
knitting, also called yarnbombing or urban knitting, is the
art of leaving knitted pieces in the
urban environment - covering bollards and street furniture,
or knitting specific pieces as a
comment on the landscape. IKL will be using unusual and
durable yarns (like cassette tape or
electric flex) alongside regular materials and would
encourage graf artists to spray the knitting
as well as the walls. IKL is looking for graffiti artists,
knitters, crocheters, schools, craft
groups and anyone else who wants to take part to come along
on the day and let their imagination
run riot.
