We will be running sessions from 12pm to 1pm from 8 October to 12 October every day in 4 West Foyer. Pop along and try out crochet and knitting and add squares to the benches!
What is “Yarn Bombing"? I hear you ask….
Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk. It is also called yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, kniffiti, urban knitting, or graffiti knitting.
Who are Mind?
Mind are a mental health charity who provide help and support directly to those who need it most. They have a network of around 135 local Minds who offer specialised support and care based on the needs of the communities they support.
It is thought that knitting and crochet can help to relieve stress – so what better way to promote the charity!
We are hoping its colour presence on the parade will draw attention to Mind. You can also donate money for all the time and effort everyone has put into doing it!
If you would like to donate squares to be part of the kniffiti – please drop them into 4 West Student Services up until 4.30pm on 12 October.
If you would like to donate money, we are taking donations on our fundraising page.
