Event Details

To create some spectacular poppies installations in Chelmsford.
The Ideas Festival 2018 theme is Peace – we’ll be looking at the question: WW1 – 100 years on where are we now? It’s the centenary of the end of the great war and we want Chelmsford to remember – with a spectacular and meaningful yarn bomb of poppies.
All Welcome! At the workshop we’ll be:
– Plastering a Bike in Knitted and Crocheted Poppies
– Knitting Poppies
– Crocheting Poppies
– no prior knowledge needed just come along and we’ll show you how it’s done.
If you want to get involved but can’t make this date – don’t worry.
Deliver your poppies to Chelmsford Library – where they are stored in the Ideas Hub’s Area! 
Also note:
– You can download a pattern from online and/or pick up some wool and the pattern from Chelmsford Library.
– We are looking for poppies in Red and in White, (white symbolizes Peace, Red is for remembrance).
All poppies are needed for Mid October.
Thank you to John Lewis for sponsoring us with Wool.
Thank you to the Essex Kitter and Stickers Group for running this workshop.
Spread the word and share this event with anyone you know who Knits or Crochets!
