Guerrilla Knitting in Cornwall

March 19, 2012

Magda Sayed was the first one who had this brilliant idea; other women followed all over the world this lady and made of knitting a form of art. In Cornwall some girls are now trying to develop the Guerrilla Knitting approach, in order to make the urban environment more colourful and pleasant.

Old benches and fences or awful light poles are living a new life thanks to the Graffiti Grannys group which is wrapping them with coloured knitted special clothes.

 

They spread creativity, joy and colours all over their cities and villages during the night, to preserve their anonymity and the game is done: when people wake up in the morning and open their curtains, they can just say … ‘wow’.
