The workshop will be the first meeting of the new Yarnbombing Season. “What is madness? – Mutant trash“_ We will start working in an installation for which we will use yarn to create artificial plants made out of natural materials and trash, all found in the park, in order to question our way of interaction with the natural environment.
> Crochet/knitting skills are not needed, although you can learn and incorporate it to your work.
> Do you have old t-shirts? you can bring them along and use them for your creation.

>State of Play – Textile Playground_ Collaboration with a beautiful initiative started by Caroline Lindo* (Textile Hunters). We together will design, make and build a giant playground in Amsterdam out of reused textiles for kids of all ages.
As always, skills are not needed and participation will be free (because of no money and because everybody is welcome!). Stay tuned and start imagining the playground of your dreams!
