Fusion Festival and the creation of the Collective Tree Cosy.

Thank you to everyone who made it over to our activity!!
We were thrilled to bits at just how many of you took the time to knit a square and help to build the collective tree cosy.

This type of event was a first for ArtYarn and we are so happy to have shared the experience of making this project with Girl Guides from all over the world.

Here are a selection of images from the event... we hope you had a wonderful centenary festival and we are so happy to have been a part of it.

If you have any images and comments you would like to share with us, please e-mail Rachael Elwell at info@artyarn.org, and we will feature them on this blog for you.

And finally, thank you to Valpuri, Rachael and Charlotte for all you hard work at the festival.. :o)

The first workshop participants arrive to take part with their knitted square...

And it wasn't long before many others came to the activity tables to start sewing up the many knitted squares into bigger patches..

In no time at all the tables were covered in all of your knitted squares, ready to be added to the Tree Cosy...

Then it was time to sew the squares on to the Tree Cosy, lots of people really got stuck into this activity...

These knitted squares really stood out!!

Everyone worked together to complete the Tree Cosy until it reached the ground..

And here is a shot of the Collective Tree Cosy at the end of the festival... Well done everyone!!

The fun didn't stop, one tree just wasn't enough for all of you eager Girl Guides! And you decided to take matters into your own hands and start a second Collective Tree Cosy!

What a wonderful time we had, well done for all of your efforts and we are really happy to have been invited to make this project for your centenary celebrations. 

Thank you, ArtYarn.
