Hello Z’amis! 🙂
I am writing to you today to appeal to your talents! 😀
Some time ago I was talking to you right here of my project Yarnbombing with the Festival Eleven moves! What is yarnbombing? It’s the art of surrounding street furniture with wire, making poles, benches, trees less impersonal. Put color in the city! Everything I like to do, knit, crochet colors, meet people from all over the world!
When the festival eleven moves contacted me to set up this project, I said yes without hesitation! Solidarity, creativity and great project!
(Pictures taken during a first Yarnbombing I had organized with Woolkiss at Ground Control)
Here is the word of the festival (they speak much better than me)
The Festival ONZE BOUGE starts to knit! In parallel with its artistic programming, Onze Bouge this year takes a bold gamble: to achieve a collective and monumental work that will give color to the place Blum Bl (75011) next June in partnership with Bergère de France!
An urban knitting work that will dress the trees, street lamps, grids of the place.
Tricot’Onze Together … You want to “whisper, chat, chat or whatever …” while adding the stitches. You are a seasoned knitter or knitter, novice with a smile or granny LOL, come join us and knit the street together. Every month, Eleven Bouge organizes knitting meetings in unusual places in the 11th arrondissement. This participatory knitting project is made with knitting lovers, curious novices, but also with the involvement of associations such as the district management of the 11th, the social center Le Picoulet, the Little Brothers of the Poor … Zak said, associate artist and passionate blogger, for whom knitting has no secret, will guide you to every appointment …
Upcoming dates :
Saturday, April 22 to the House of Steelworkers of 15h to 18h30
Tuesday, April 25 to the Parmentier Library of 16h to 18h30

The productions of this day will be distributed to various charities (Foundation Abbé Pierre, The Little Brothers of the Poor, Emmaus …)
At the end of this installation, the wool used will be recycled via a competent structure such as the Little Rockette or reemployed by a charity.
