inside job

we work there so we know how to get in at night. our covert operation is to decorate 26 poles around the arts and crafts centre and gallery with funky knitting grrl+dog style. wanna join us? we need knitted, woven, textile etc strips of gorgeousness to tie round the poles. Each piece needs to measure 11.5 inches wide and can be as long as you like (up to about 2 metres). The arts and crafts centre is open to 70+ artists who have learning difficulties and other disabilities. Many are blind or have low vision so the more tactile the better and squeaks and bells etc will go down well too. Durable materials recommended as it rains a lot around here! The centre is open to the public so feel free to 'tag' your artwork with your name / website / message as we hope this will be seen by lots of people visiting the centre over the next 6 months / 1 year. The action starts next week so get your needles clicking !

Oh and by the way - we don't reckon the management are going to arrest us and send us to knitting prison - we think they'll LOVE IT.

guerilla medals

blimey - it's so long since I've been here I've almost forgotten how to post messages and upload pictures. but here's one of some of the medals to honour the brave comrades who came on the art 'ant'ics a few weeks ago. it was a fine mission. there were ants in the cafe, ants in the cinema, ants attached to bicycles, babies, cars and railings. apparently it's shrines and monsters next.
