Yarn Bombing for Six Streets Derby

Six Streets is an area of Derby not very far from the city centre. This year it celebrated it’s second Art Trail over the weekend of June 22nd and 23rd. Residents opened up their homes and local artists and makers were exhibiting their work. As part of the trail, trees on Wheeldon Avenue were decorated by individuals and local groups, the theme was the natural world . We at the Angel Eden Blog have been solely responsible for two of the trees and have also been involved with a number of the group efforts. Two of the trees have been decorated by local schools and each tree has a label to advise who has done the work.

I think there were twenty trees decorated in total and the road really did look good. The Art Trail was open for just the one weekend but the Yarn creations will stay up for a couple of weeks.

I have not included pictures of all the trees as they are far too many but here are just a selection.

  1. There are pictures of a military tank covered with decorative knitting and crocheting in Copenhagen, Denmark, a pothole coaster in Paris, France, an entire city bus in Mexico City and a bike rack in Orinda, Calif., and in Vancouver, Canada, firemen carefully attached yarn cherry blossoms to the bare branches of their trees.
