"You've really brightened my day"
"Wrapping things in town and creating havoc!"
"It's not very good"
"What a waste of wool"
Yarn storm in Wakefield on a beautiful cold blue sky day. Working in the shadow of the Cathedral with crows and pigeons flocking overhead. Wrapping the town centre in acrylic yarn, drawing, outlining street furniture, keeping secrets, not telling the whole story, unraveling, colouring in, enticing passers-by to ask questions, to join us, connections, conversations with strangers and the inert city space, adding an unfamiliar texture. Young people, citizens of their city, inhabiting and leaving their mark over six hours. Wakefield Happening.
