Yarn bombing,a form of street graffiti,has begun in San Antonio's La Villita, with the trunks of 20-30 trees throughout the town decorated with colorful knit and crochet work. The guerrilla knitting will stay up for 3 weeks so the public can view it.
The project is one that will require the work of many to reach its full potential. Laura Wood is the curator of this project and was inspired by the group, “Knitta Please.” The installation of this art project is in conjunction with the San Antonio Coffee Festival, which kicks off on December 1, 2012.
Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.
