The Coral Tree Project is complete (professional photos to come - fingers crossed!) It took three months prep, a whole days work, four people installing and a lot of enthusiasm but there you have it. I hope the kids like it!
Over the years, I have learned a lot during the process of creating a large knitted installation from scratch that can be shared with anyone who is interested in yarnbombing. So I put together a few 'rules' as such into what I will call "The YarnBombing Series" - Stay tuned for more tips. The first part of this series is about the preparation and beginning phase of an installation. This is general knowledge for larger scale projects but all things considered you need to be well prepared for any size project!
Note: This post assumes all activities and installation places are completely legal. Fibre Arts Road takes no responisiblitity for illegal activity of any kind nor do they promote illegal yarnbombing or street art.
Getting yourself prepared for your big project not only helps ease your mind when you think about all the details in the middle of the night but it helps ensure your team is on the same track, there is lots of enthusiasm and less time consuming mistakes. Also it makes your project come together more fluid. Stay tuned for The Yarnboming Series part 2 - The yarnbombers toolbox.
