Yarnbombing the YMCA: International Women’s Day

On Saturday 10th March, Aunty hosted a yarnbombing workshop for young women (age 13-16 years) from a variety of youth groups from Wyre.  Activities included dance and various arts and crafts activities and took place at Fleetwood YMCA …Young (wo)man, there’s no need to feel down, la la la.

Participants learned how to get crafty and stitch together a variety of woolly loveliness to create a flower garden outside the entrance to Tommy’s the local youth club.  All in all, it was a lovely day, we had some great positive feedback from the groups and created a woolly wilderness to boot, fabulous!
