Want to help yarnbomb Ballarat for Pride Month?

This workshop is in collaboration with the Ballarat Pride Yarn Bombing Project, a public art initiative supported by the City of Ballarat to celebrate Pride Month. If you would like, you can add your crocheted creations to one of the many trees around Ballarat that are currently decorated with yarn bombing.

What’s included?

This 1.5 hour workshop will provide all the materials and guidance to create your own crochet square, rainbow, or custom deisgn for decorating trees across Ballarat.
Select trees all throughout Ballarat will be decorated with yarn during Pride Month in June to celebrate and share the beauty of our local LGBTQIA+ community.

You are inviited to use the yarn, crochet hooks and knitting needles provided to create squares and rectangles. The squares will be collected by the team at the BPYBP and sewn together to be displayed in trees around Ballarat for the month of June.

So that this project can continue to benefit Ballarat even after June, once the knitted and crochet pieces have been removed from the trees, they will be washed and repurposed into blankets for Ballarat Animal Shelter.

All instructions and materials provided. With all levels from beginner to experts encouraged to join the fun and share your skills!
