Some super talented crocheters are joining me to produce Burton in yarn! We’ve also had submissions from those who can’t make my weekly crochet sessions held at the Brewhouse on Tuesdays from 1 – 2, but who want to get involved.
I am so thrilled to share our progress so far in these wonderful images. It’s the first time I’ve actually put all the buildings, trees, river and vehicles together, and we’ve already got something so beautiful! I may have taken some film footage as well, so look out for the work in progress film coming soon!
But there is more to do.
We’re aiming to have the finished town ready for Easter 2017, where we are planning with the local arts team a tour of Burton, hoping to spend a few weeks in a number of locations. For us to meet that target we’ll be hooking Stapenhill Gardens, more houses, vehicles, landmarks and even weather!
If you’d like to get involved, see my previous blog post on how to hook a house, and keep an eye out for more patterns. You can also come along to the Brewhouse Arts Centre in Burton on a Tuesday from 1-2 where I share patterns, new techniques, materials and ideas for £5.
The most helpful thing anyone can do is spread the word to all your crafting friends! The more submissions we have, the easier it will be to make this project a success! It’s going to be amazing!!
Send your submissions for #BurtonYarnTrent to the Brewhouse and we’ll include your work too!
