Craftbombing

Craftbombing

We love the idea of this! Why throw glass bottles when you can take the moral high ground in every way, and vent your discontent through creativity rather than destruction?

This week is Voluntary Arts Week, an annual celebration of amateur arts and crafts across the UK and Ireland. This year, for the first time, the week will include a 'CraftBomb' – an opportunity for communities throughout the British Isles to liven up their neighbourhoods. Whether they weave tapestry or baskets, knit, crochet or sew, voluntary groups of all ages have been encouraged to get involved.
