Liz Wright was the winner of our spring 2013 mini commission. She reclaimed our public monuments and places, personalising and decorating them with your handmade knitted creations.
Liz invited men, women and children to make new connections with the town and each other via the traditional skill of knitting. She helped people learn to knit at a number of workshops and informal gatherings.
The results of these workshops, along with many other hand crafted donations, were used by nearly 40 local people of all ages to yarn bomb Bedfor’s Embankment on World Yarn Bombing Day in June 2013.
