Blooming Bridge yarnbombing

Yarn-Bombing


The movement of graffiti artists, dubbed ‘Yarn bombers‘ have abandoned spray cans in favour of knitting needles and wool.

Indeed, you can see a lot of that kind of knit graffiti in the city and I love this idea.

That makes the world softer…

Then, yesterday we went off Flinders Street station to have a nice drink with the sunset, and we saw from a distance a bridge with knitting on it… So we decided to head that bridge.

I think that the installation has been organised by Yarn Corner on the 6th of November 2011. The event was called the Blooming Bridge Project and a lot of yarn bombers took part of it.

A huge part of the Southgate Footbridge has been decorated with knitting by (from the artists I saw…):

- Yarn Revolt on www.facebook.com/yarnrevolt from Indiana, USA
- Twilight Taggers on www.facebook.com/pages/twilight-Taggers or their Blog: twilightjaggers.blogspot.com or even on FlickR www.flickr.com/photos/twilight_jaggers
- Yarn Stormer
- Pebble on www.facebook.com/yarncorner
- Poppy Tonka on www.facebook.com/poppytonka

Here are a few photos of the project:

I hope it will last a long time because it’s really great to have that kind of art in the city. That adds color in everydays life!

When we arrived in Melbourne, the first yarn bombing piece we saw was a bike in Fitzroy area:

I hope we will see a lot more as I really enjoy yarn bombing!
